The tree in question seems to be a conifer, quite possible Hemlock. Hemlock seems to be occurring at its eastern fringe where the specimen were obtained. It could be other conifer, since G.tsugae grows on them too.

Such beautiful mushrooms. I can never bring myself to cut em. Although it doesn’t really matter I walked through an area where someone had kicked em all of the trees and left them to rot on the ground. And from the exact spot that they broke off mature specimens had already came back. Sorry no hard feelings.

If you don’t know that Ganoderma lucidum is considered an herb and it is used for making tea and herbal extracts,before making such a comments you should inquire about the specific mushroom.

Did you harvest those? Did your dad teach you to eat what you kill?
