Gleditsia Tree Killed by Fungus

I have a small gleditsia tree which has been killed by honey fungus. If I plant another tree, will that also be attacked? What can I do to stop this from happening? Is it possible to plant a tree in a container and bury the container to avoid attack? What can I do to stop the fungus from killing other plants in the garden?


Honey fungus is deadly, but a liberal soaking with Armillatox may kill it off.Planting in a container could work, but the tree/shrub will not grow well,
unless it is a fig which needs restricted roots.

Imperial vs Skyline Honey Locust

What is difference in root system of Imperial vs Skyline honey locust trees?

Certified GKH Gardening Expert

A Skyline maturity size is 60 x 35 feet.
An Imperial is 30 x 40 feet.

Root systems go deep so they are excellent lawn choices as roots do not become exposed.
