    These look like they might be irregular growths of Ganoderma mushrooms arising from buried wood. The species would be difficult to determine without more info.

    Largest one is about 1 foot across. Texture a bit like gypsum board….yes, a tree was removed so yes, roots likely being broken down.

    Although yes this certainly looks like a laccate Ganoderma, growing a bit oddly ... because the growth pattern is very like Onnia tomentosa, I'd like to ask @Polar2 : Was the removed tree a spruce?
