Found these bits in a roadside cutting I’ve been driving past for a couple of years now. Could be some good bits there if I had any idea what I was looking at. Older bro is gunna have a look at Christmas time when he comes home. Seems pretty chuffed with some of the pics so far.

Yes, having seen these additional photos and knowing it is hard, petrified wood is definitely a possibility

Apparently the piece in the sandstone is bone. Well that’s ok if it’s real. Million year old bone. I’m happy with that. Needs to be more investigation but I’m happy with that.

Posted pics to bro and he needs to get the samples look at. Damn it would be so cool if they are older than the gold we’re chasing .

Im thinking it could be a Burl on the Tree.... I have seen a Petrified Burl before and it had simular structure to your piece...

Yeah unfortunately this was the only complete one. Lots of partial leaves and a few small bits of ferns. Unfortunately the material it’s in kind of fractures in all directions, so a bit hard to get complete fossils.
