So I have a piece of fossilised/petrified wood from the North Caucasus region of Russia, but I'm trying to identify what species it genus it is from. I've done a bit of looking, but I can't seem to find many references to any floral species that this could come from. My reading so far leads me to suspect that it's Pinus / Pine wood that has been fossilised given the region, but does anyone have any more sources on potential tree types that it could be?
