PostSubject: THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX, CELL STRUCTURE   Sat Nov 19, 2016 10:20 am


Where are the ancient trees, would they not be petrified, Redwoods and Ancient Juniper are extremely large... why no known petrified ones of large size have been found????

I saw the original video last night along with another person saying similar things, then this morning this one catches my eye. Ya know there is something to this, if you find some small trees that are petrified and claimed to be ancient they were petrified where the are, possibly have been washed to that location first but why in other parts of the world were there not similar locations with larger ones??

Show me!

So my thought was that the past impact of Earth would have blown off a lot of the atmosphere which would be the reason why the largest we have now are the Redwoods or the ancient Juniper believed to be between 4000-6000 yrs old, but we see none larger, so something changed???

Why is this petrified tree still standing? What it volcanic heat and gasses that caused its petrification rather than covered with??
Yellowstone’s Petrified Forest

Petrified Tree in Yellowstone by Daniel Mayer [GFDL or CC-BY-SA-3.0-2.5-2.0-1.0], via Wikimedia Commons
By April Cumming
Tucked away on a tall, dusty-brown dirt outcropping in the northeast corner of the park lies a natural attraction just waiting for passerby to take notice.
With a historical story to tell just as the parks other natural wonders do, Yellowstone’s petrified forest is a just as much look into the past as it is something to be admired in the present.
Around 50 million years ago, scientists say this area of the park was flourishing with tall redwood trees, maples, magnolias, oaks, dogwoods, and pines when volcanic eruptions from the nearby Absaroka Mountain range buried the forest in ash.
As the organic, woody material of the trees began to decay, silica-rich groundwater started to seep into the wood cells of the trees. This occurrence helped to preserve the buried forest by literally “freezing” the wood and halting their decomposition.
Meanwhile, the ash exposed on the surface slowly weathered into clay and the clay eventually weathered into soil that was suitable for new forest growth.
This cycle is thought to have taken 200 years – from old to new forest. It was a process, scientists say, that repeated itself for tens of thousands of years.
Glacial ice and the eroding power of running water and wind have uncovered the vast areas of fossil forests that visitors can see today. The Specimen Ridge site has 27 successive layers of forest – tree stumps that stand exposed, stratified from oldest to youngest as you make your way up the hillside. At the 3,400 foot high Specimen Creek formation, there are about 50 successive layers of exposed forest that can be seen.
Some of the oldest petrified trees uncovered by erosion in the park are up to 25 feet in diameter and count up to 1,000 tree rings.
Even more forest still lies fossilizing underground – an unseen natural wonder awaiting the attention of future visitors to Yellowstone.

I propose that the limitation of growth is also hindered by atmospheric pressure and should be considered seriously.

Ancient trees more than twice the height of the tallest giant redwoods?

“They studied giant redwoods, the tallest trees on earth in Humboldt County California to reach these conclusions. They hypothesized and verified experimentally that as trees reached the height of 425 they could pump less and less water and nutrients up to new growth at that level. No current tree in the world has reached this height.

In effect, maximum tree growth is limited by gravity and friction.

Look how it is deteriorating, similar the tower?

PostSubject: Blue Forest of Eden Valley, Wyoming, USA   Sat Nov 19, 2016 11:28 am


Blue Forest of Eden Valley, Wyoming, USA

The petrified Blue Forest in Eden Valley, Wyoming, was formed from fallen trees that lived about 50 million years ago in a swampy area. When the trees died and fell into the swamp, they were rapidly covered with algae – this was a good thing. The algae formed casts that preserved the original bark surfaces of the trees and kept them from decaying. The wood shrunk and eventually it, the algae casts and the spaces between them were filled in by minerals, often in exquisite, crystalline form.

Blue agate is one of the beautiful minerals displayed by petrified trees from the Blue Forest, and it’s even more appealing when complemented by white quartz crystals and golden Calcite inclusions as seen in the specimen above.

Monumento Natural Bosque Petrificado, Argentina

About 140 million years ago, the Andes had yet to rise and what are today the arid steppes of Argentine Patagonia were moist and misty, shaded by old growth forests of gigantic Araucatis Mirabilis trees reaching up to 330 feet into the sky.

This idyllic scenario was not to last – the Andes were born in a burst of volcanic eruptions that drowned the majestic forests in successive waves of ash and lava. Erosion has worked to remove the layers of volcanic rock, revealing Monumento Natural Bosque Petrificado, one of the most spectacular petrified forests in South America.

The fineness of the volcanic ash often served to cushion the more fragile parts of the trees against the heat and violence of the volcanic eruptions, resulting in the astonishingly detailed petrified pine cones shown above.

The western United States is best known archaeology-wise as a hotbed of dinosaur fossils but scattered among the bones are copious remains of the trees dinosaurs roamed among, nibbled upon and trampled underfoot. Some of the most noteworthy specimens of petrified wood come from Yellow Cat Flat, just north of Moab, Utah. Much of the petrified wood found here has eroded out from the Morrison Formation; rocks laid down around 150 million years ago in the Jurassic period.

Yellow Cat petrified wood is famous for its rich red color and orange to yellow highlights that result from the presence of iron and other metal compounds. Known as Carnelian, this deep reddish petrified wood has been worked into jewelry and arrowheads for many centuries. Visitors to the area should be advised that Yellow Cat Flat and the surrounding area is extremely desolate and dry (the ground water is contaminated with uranium and arsenic). There’s no food, bathrooms, accommodation or cell phone service… much like it was back in the Jurassic.

Theodore Roosevelt National Park, North Dakota

The badlands of western North Dakota have a lot of good to show you, if you’re interested in petrified wood. Dating from the Paleocene Era (about 55 million years ago, after the dinosaurs went extinct), petrified wood can be found in scattered chunks, eroded logs and truncated trunks that still stand upright.

One of the best places in North Dakota to find an ancient frozen forest is in the South Unit of Theodore Roosevelt National Park, located off Interstate 94 near Medora, about 130 miles west of Bismarck, ND. The petrified trees belong to many species but the largest stumps (up to 12 feet or 3.65m in diameter) belong to the genus Metasequoia – the Dawn Redwood. Those who happen to be in Bismarck can check out a 120-foot (36.5 meter) long, 6-ft (1.82m) wide petrified Metasequoia log that’s been installed on the grounds of the state capital building.

Prehistoric Kauri Forest, New Zealand

Not all petrified wood is stone, and the process of petrification is anything but instant. Take New Zealand’s Prehistoric Kauri Forest as an example. Kauri trees – many of them huge, exceptionally wide specimens – grew in a swampy part of New Zealand’s North Island tens of thousands of years ago, and most of those designated as “Ancient Kauri” have been buried for up to 45,000 years. They’re partially petrified, and considered to be “the oldest workable wood in the world.”

The largest Ancient Kauri log extracted from the ground measured 75 feet (23 meters) long, 37 feet (11.3 meters) wide and weighed in at a staggering 140 tons. Examination of the tree’s growth rings determined that it was 1,087 years old when it died. Part of the log was turned into a unique spiral staircase that can be seen at the showroom and retail outlet of Ancient Kauri Kingdom in Awanui, New Zealand.

Mummified Forest, Axel Heiberg Island, Canada

How do you make a Mummified Forest? Take one lush, old growth forest of Dawn Redwood trees and situate it 700 miles from the North Pole. Oh, you’ll also have to go back in time about 45 million years, to an era when global warming wasn’t a threat, but the norm.

Today on Canada’s otherwise desolate Axel Heiberg Island, a mummified forest grips the permafrost with gnarled roots. Not living but not petrified either, this exceptionally ancient wood can be sawed and burned if need be – and if you’re a paleobotanist thirsty for a cup of hot tea, one plays the hand they’re dealt.
