    A shelf fungus. Probably Polyporus sulphureus

    Have the tree examined by an ISA-certified arborist - the fungus indicates extensive decay, and the tree may well be dangerous, liable to fall in a storm.

    yeah, have the tree checked out. And in the mean time, I'll send you $15 to send that mushroom to me.
