Hi, I had a maple / sycamore tree removed because I was advised that it had honey fungus. I have lived here since August 2016 and never saw anything resembling honey fungus on the tree or nearby lawn. I did see tiny white, almost translucent, mushrooms on the bark but nothing else. I intended to have the tree pollarded but was advised to remove it because there were signs of honey fungus near the root. I have now had the stump ground out and understand that I am very limited to what I can plant in it's place (forget the magnolia I just bought!). Is there anyway of checking if honey fungus is present in the soil where the tree was?
