Thanks Will - I have a copy of that book (Picked it up last year for £1.40!) He does give an example of bridge grafting across bacterial canker wounds in cherry. It may be worth a try, but it would be tricky as the wounds are pretty much at ground level.  Also I'm 90% sure it's not bacterial canker but more likely a perennial fungus, causing target-type wounds, so cutting in to healthy tissue for grafting could spread the infection (?) It looks rather like Stereum canker rot (as illustrated in in Strouts & Winter) but it could be (Neo)nectria. I'll keep an eye open for fruiting bodies...

Trouble is, Tetradium is too uncommon (in the UK anyway) to get a mention as a possible host. It's a good species though - nectar-producing flowers in the summer (hence the 'bee tree' name), red seed pods now and seemingly quite hardy; it could be planted more widely.

Jerry,
           Bridge grafting is used generally for trees that have been ring barked or 
sevely damaged, theres an excellent book called the Grafters Handbook by RJ 
Gardeners#, numerous editions  see links below for downloads though I haven’t 
checked them out as I have a copy from many years ago when I was at college

Interesting; but would grafting, which involves damaging the tree's tissue, 
be wise near what appears to be a canker caused by an active pathogen?

trying bridge grafting, might work if there's enough young material on the tree.Will-----Original

(Euodia, Bee bee tree)Does anyone at all have any information as to what might be causing, and how to treat, 
this (these) basal canker(s) on a Tetradium daniellii.It started a couple of years ago and looked bad but the 
tree has recovered and seems OK, but with two large cankers at the base I'm not convinced it won't fall over in 
a year or two, unless the cankers can be stopped in their tracks.Any ideas? Pathogen and/or treatment?Another
