Is this bracket fungus ? I found it on the ground on the green outside our bungalow. It was under a very ancient Ash tree. It is very black and solid.
I have attached a photograph

This formation is exactly like the Oak Bracket on our red oak which resulted in us having to have it taken down.

I say the formation because ours wasn't black but started out sandy then gradually turned darker brown.

There is a black fungus of the bracket type which afflicts Ash trees. Not sure of the name, but there is a lot of it on one of the trees along our lane.

I've seen this on exhibit at the Guggenheim.
