Anyone know what these are?

Does anyone have any clue what are embedded in this? I've never seen them before.

My first assumption is that they are petrified tree branches, but I wanted to see if there were any other answers.

It's a coral, I agree, possibly solitary rugose coral.

Definitely coral. Fossilized wood looks much different. Nice find.

Crinoid impression

I agree with most here. First specimen looks to be rugose coral. Second specimen looks like a crinoid stem imprint. There also appears to be a possible impression of a shell next to the crinoid.

+1 - dead on! And it looks like there's something to the right of the crinoid. I'm almost willing to bet there's more on the back side too.
