Well, it looks like it, but to the best of my knowledge, chaga doesn’t grow on anything other than birch – paper birch, yellow, white and grey…

Best thing to do is find a horticulturalist = check with your local University – and ask them to check out what you have found. If you’re gonna use it for tinder, having it be genuine chaga – Inonotus obliquus – is not such a big deal… but if you’re gonna use it for medicinal purposes – like making tea out of it and drinking it, then you really, really need to track down a horticulturalist…

You don’t need to be wandering the woods, sticking random things in your mouth to see what happens… that’s a good way to end up room temperature.. :)
