"If you have honey fungus/armillara your stump has been dead for some time as it thrives in wood/stumps.it will spread to healthy plants/tree so remove asap."

"Honey fungus is one of the commonest root diseases of trees and shrubs in the world. It can kill an enormous range of plants and also causes decay in standing trees. It is rarely a major problem in woodland al though it sometimes kills large groups of conifers in young plantations. If it is close to other trees then I would recommend the stump removed"

"Yes, if you have access have the stump removed. Honey fungus can be very aggressive and can spread easily to other susceptible species of which there are many."
