Yes, I saw that on Ted Talks…6 ways mushrooms can save the world. Unfortunatly, my son was swinging this stick around after school when I noticed what was on it. But I will return to the area to see if I can find a similar stick attatched to a tree. Thanks so much!

Any idea what kind of wood?

Many of the white wood-rotting fungi are now being shown to degrade toxic waste. Knowing what kind of branch, even a guess, might assist with future cultivation efforts.

just remember, not all IDs are created equal. these are really just guesses based on naked-eye resemblance, distribution, substrate, etc. really confirming these things often requires microscopy.
