Ashicaulis Triassic Tree Fern FossilDescription: Sections of tree fern trunks are highly prized for their beauty. Tree ferns have been around Tree Fernsince the Permian, and persist to this day, earning them the term “living fossil”. The “trunk” is composed of many vascular elements that supply the plant with water and nourishment, making for a most pleasing overall effect. This is an essentially complete trunk section which shows the adventitious roots of the fern in great detail. See my other offerings for another small, complete example.
