Recently, Laetiporus sulphureus has been relegated to that Laetiporus growing on hardwoods, which in your area is probably Red alder or Bigleaf maple.

If not growing on Red alder or Bigleaf maple, probably is the similar Laetiporus coniferoides, which grows on Sitka spruce, old-growth Douglas-fir, and perhaps older Western hamlock.
