Uh-oh...  I wonder, I remember that in Florida 
it was rumoured that they sprayed a lot of cow pastures with something to stop 
the magic mushrooms from growing.  Wonder what it was?  Is there any 
deficiency known that predisposes to fungal growth, or anything, like copper, 
that might help slow it?  We had Southern Blight attacking peppers early 
one wet summer.  After having ID'd it, I poured some copper sulfate on the 
area and laid a rolled up peice of copper screen (which we happened to have 
lying around) on the ground by the nearest surviving peppers.  The blight 
stopped.  The book says SB will get nearly any kind of veggies you can grow 
and lives in the soil for years.  I grew garlic there the next year with no 
trouble, and have some alfalfa planted there this year as it is said to be 
resistant.  Some rootstocks are more resistant than others to Armillaria, 
but it's a bit late now when your trees are already in the ground.  

    If you look for a list of plants 
that are resistant to Armillaria, does it include your plants that seem to 
be fine?   What are the nearest possible victims?  Donna
