I thought this was a fungus or lichen growing on this tree trunk, but had to do some research to be sure.

It is a Bracket Fungus, and these are the fruiting bodies of the fungus – people sometimes call them conks apparently. While they look like mushrooms and you’d expect them to be soft, they are actually hard and woody.
