    Managing Armillaria
    http://www.tcia.org/Digital_Magazine...ag_May10LR.pdf

    Page 22: Trees infected with Armillaria fungus can be treated by exposure and by inoculation with beneficial antagonists to that pathogen. This research proves the effectiveness of exposing the infected area and treating with beneficial microorganisms.

    In addition, several studies in the forestry, phytopathology and ecology literature demonstrate the effectiveness of these treatments. Therefore, it seems that condemning trees in urban areas based on rhizomorphs without considering these simple therapeutic treatments may be needlessly costing those communities irreplaceable arboreal resources.
