Palm tree??


Recommended Posts

Yes found it in Alaska. Also some rocks there that look like palm leaves in them. Suppose it could be cycad, I'm not familiar with it

so will do some research, thanks, Bob

Bob whatever that is, you ought to find out how old it is....pretty cool find...imagine Alaska being tropical. Just think, that could be 45 million years old.

UPDATE; Word from Australians that are familiar with this petrified type fern--osmundaceae family. Possible paleo osmunda or osmunda callis. It is found down under but was apparently in Alaska during its tropical time, Bob

Mystery solved! I didn't think it was palm because you don't see palm with smaller bits on the inside that get progressively larger toward the outside. I tried like the dickens to ID it for you, but cycad was still just a guess. Now I've got more info for the future. Thanks for the update!
