I don't recognise it from the photo, but I was in Sunny Vale today, looking for amphibians. (Didn't find any.)It's an unusual bluish colour. The tree looks like a Poplar, is that right? It could help with the id.
Yes, the species of tree would help. It looks a bit like willow bark, a suggestion is Willow Bracket (Phellinus igniarius)??
Im about as good at tree id as iam at fungi id, but thanks anway.
Sorry, Fran.If you want to give me directions I can pop over and look at it.Also I am thinking of running a tree identification course starting this summer. Would you be interested?Then we are having a talk by a tree specialist called Bel Hale on October 8th at our monthly indoor meeting, to which non-members are always welcome.Thanks for your post.Steve
