Steve Stonelover posted a topic in General Fossil DiscussionMany roots of the Lepidodendron have been found here cast in fine grained, very hard sandstone. One specimen of bark has been found that is in a repetitive diamond pattern reminiscent of scales on a tropical palm type tree. Another one off specimen is of the interior trunk or wood of the tree--(presumably). All of these specimens are the same type of sandstone. This is definitely Lepidodendron country as no other fossils have been found here to date. Pics of individual specimens will be gladly posted upon request.

Dinosaur Valley State Park in Glen Rose, Texas I cannot recommend this plac
