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.
What is difference in root system of Imperial vs Skyline honey locust trees?
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.
Had 3 planted last spring,leaves were sparse last year, but I was told that was expected. This year each tree has a few what appear to be dried, brittle, and dead branches and all have the same in the top 1/4 of the tree. Do these trees have a chance or should they be replaced? I need some info to intelligently speak with the landscaping company that planted them. There may be a one year warranty. Any assistance you can give will be appreciated. Thank You, Craig D Port Huron, MI
It sound as though the top portions of your trees died off. It can be due to watering issues or damage from the winter, or reasons that can't be explained.
Most reputable garden centers will guarantee a new tree for the first year. I would check your receipts.
do i have ANY control over the amount of pods yearly ? better yet, can i prevent the pods all together ?
Aside from manual removal- unfortunately, not really.
There are ways to sterilize the tree, but this needs to be left to the professionals. Improper use of the chemicals needed can lead to some serious issues for your self, and the entire ecosystem near you.

Hello! We have a newly planted....since July....Sunburst Honey Locust tree. It has finally started sprouting all the way up but starting with the bottom of the trunk. Should be remove the suckers right Now? Thank you!
Yes. Just keep watch, since this can indicate that an issue is present with the tree. Unfortunately, your photo didn't come through, so I can't confirm.
Keeping them trimmed away will be the best option, though.
