Black excrecences

I looked carefully at these and wondered if they were a kind of fungi, but thought they were more likely to be dried sap.

These are a fungus Daldinia concentrica that is +/- restricted to Ash - so might be worth putting the Scientific name for Ash (Fraxinus excelsior ) into your id and putting the picture in fungi and lichens section

Daldinia concentrica

Thank you very much. I started off thinking it was a kind of fungi then changed my mind - good to know my first thoughts were valid.

It is possible I don't know how though to move this to Fungi where you could find more people to see the photograph and to agree with it
