Petrified wood is the fossilization of plant materials, mainly woody stems, trunks, & roots. When a freshly toppled tree is covered with ash or other oxygen-depriving materials, the process of decomposition is halted. Instead, the process of permineralization slowly replaces the organic constituents over time. After millions of years, movements in the tectonic plates, changes in weather patterns, or variations in erosion eventually uncover these stone trees. Now made of inorganic minerals, they still perfectly model the original plant down to the level of individual cells. Because of this mineralized documentation of the living organism, petrified wood represents an excellent source for scientists to get information about historical plant species which dominated the ecosystem. Specifically, scientists can match the petrified wood to extant relatives based on cellular morphology.
