A bit vague, not

Please try to include photos to show all parts of the fungus, eg top, stem, and gills.
Note any smells, and associated trees or plants (eg oak, birch). A spore print can be very useful.

A bit vague, not

Hello. This is a recurring bracket on a tree in my dad’s garden. Same time appearing two years running now. He says the tree is Tree of Heaven(?)
The largest fruit body is at least 8 inches across.
Thank you for any help with this very vague description!

Sorry, posted inadvertently! I can’t provide further info, as I haven’t seen the fungus myself. Just the photo. Any help much appreciated.

Easily done. This is Polyporus squamosus, Dryad's Saddle.

When asking for IDs, it would be courteous if the original poster would reply with some sort of thanks / acknowledgement for the responses our members made. :?
