lilly pilly in trouble?
We have a lilly pilly with borer holes and a fungal infection on its bark. Where the borers have been and the bark is peeling away there looks like scar tissue developing, so hopefully there isn't a problem there, but on one side of the tree there is a huge area of white fungus. The tree is about ten or twelve years old and looks healthy enough with lots of young growth. The trunk is always in complete shade. Other syzygiums near by don't have the infection, nor does the neighbouring macadamia. Does anyone know how to treat the problem? We don't want to take the tree out as it gives privacy from my neighbours' upstairs window. It is also home to a nesting dove.
