What is going on with my tree? Is it dead?

The trunk with the shelf fungus is rotten inside. Obvious one sided death on a tree usually means the roots on one side of the tree have died or disease has not infected the both trunks. The tree is a hazard and should be taken down before it comes down in a wind.

Thank you for the quick reply, I was worried it was gonna be bad news.
