Honey fungus is one of the commonest root diseases of trees and shrubs in the world. It has gained a reputation as a devastating disease against which there is little protection, although this view is rarely justified. Diseased plants cannot be cured but larger ones can nevertheless survive for many years. Spread between plants can often be prevented or inhibited and disease at the site reduced to a tolerable level. Furthermore, research in recent years has shown some strains or species of the fungus to be relatively harmless. In woodlands the cost of control measures is rarely justified but in some conifer plantations, parks, gardens, orchards and arboreta, where the value of each plant is comparatively high, honey fungus can be a serious problem and it is for these situations that this Bulletin is written.
