That's a Scopulicola. It looks far to healthy to be randomly growing in the wild and was probably someone's property that you have taken.

Hang on to it, or at least the tip piece. Scops are nice.

Thats a great find then, you should plant it. Just make sure the wound is calloused nicely first. With big pieces like that you can accelerate the callous hardening with a bit of morning sun on the end. Big scops look quite majestic, its a keeper.
