Obviously, my first upload is a photograph of the specimen of petrified wood I found in a caliche pit in Live Oak County, Texas and serves to let you know examples of petrified wood are also desirable to add to this group's pics! This specimen, more than any other, is what generated my focus on this type of phenomina. Suggestions as to any other types of photographs, related to the general topic, are very welcome!

Group Description

Due to my interest in petrified wood and all of it's varying forms, I thought it wood be a good idea to find a way to share depictions of dead or dying wood, to show the process it goes through, in it's many forms and to help explain some of the more unusual types of petrified wood. I would really appreciate the help of those who have access to areas where wood has been covered by volcanic ash, realizing there are a great many degrees of that element and some wood may be exposed after it has been initially covered up and after erosion has removed some of the ash. Please take appropriate cautions when attempting to take photographs near or around an active volcano!

Group Rules

Only photographs of dead, dying or decaying wood, or petrified wood are acceptable. Any photographs that include a person, pet or pornographic or sexually explicit nature are prohibited. If anyone continues to upload photographs that have to be removed by the admin, they will be permanently blocked from the group. No more than three uploads per day are allowed.
