    Petrified Wood ID Help?

    Found on private property in the NW (Arkansas) end of the Ouachita Mountain range. The land owner had dug a small pond and a partial basement. This stuff was everywhere but most pieces were too large to carry. I kept this piece and am going back this summer to photograph some neat fossilized leaves that certainly look tropical to me. I'm think this is a type of palm wood just on a hunch. I'm not able to see any viens but the appearance of the bark is pretty distinctive.
    Any Ideas??

    Wow! Thanks.
    Roughly 300 million years old! I'm going to polish up one end to see if it has color.
    My return visit will be interesting since it may involve the Arkansas Fish and Game department. The land owner feeds the black bears and I intend to photograph the bears for them. I may help them identify individual bears.
    They may provide insights to locate an indian camp site rumored to be on the property.
