Honey fungus on tree stump

Reported via mobile in the Problem with fungi category anonymously at 13:23, Sun 11 October 2020

Sent to Peterborough City Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2335689.

Tree was removed about 4 years ago. Requested stump was removed due to regrowth and as it hinders our ability to repair the damage caused to our fence by the tree. It now has honey fungus that has spread into our garden and poses a threat to any of our future planting and our recently planted for sentimental reasons, small tree/shrub. If you had properly dealt with the stump in the first place we could have avoided this problem. There are roots and dead wood that are in our garden from the stump of the tree. Deadly nightshade has also regrown from this area. If the dead wood, roots and stump are properly removed and treated this should remedy the problem. If the tree we planted dies and if we have to get a professional in to fix the issues caused by your tree and lack of action thereafter we will charge it back to the council.
