Looks to be a desiccated Phaeolus schweinitzii 

Take my hat off to you guys, i can’t even pronounce em.... let alone remember em! Its a fascinating subject and for years have always wondered why “mushrooms” grew around/on trees!

Perhaps Dyer's Mazegill (the common name for this one) is easier to remember?! 😊

Which is a little confusing as it’s technically a polypore and doesn’t have gills. Albeit the pores are elongated and mazelike.

A little look into the brown rot fungus Phaeolus schweinitzii.

 

 

Perhaps a first step is to inform the owner of the tree; Local Authority or private?

 

In brief this fungus is bad news for the tree in the long run.
