Honey fungus

Honey fungus has killed a Boston Ivy and the fungus is now showing at the base of the dead plant. Should I remove the fungus now in advance of getting someone to take out the plant, getting rid of all the roots (my husband and I cannot manage this on our own), or leave it until the whole dead plant is removed?

    anything you can see to remove will affect nothing. The business end of HF is on the roots. Are you sure of the ID? many people have feared HF only to find a useful fungus has grown on a dead plant

    You can't dig out honey fungus but don't panic. It's just about everywhere and perennials, most shrubs and many healthy trees will grow perfectly well.

    I would cut off the mushrooms don't need them spreading spores.
