Unique in all the world, this massive ancient fossil is for sale with a buy it now or best offer. It is the largest example of a freestanding completely petrified cypress tree base in the world. You really have to stand next to it to get the full effect. It’s incredible!!

It’s creation and formation would have been a rare event. It’s not hard to imagine this large cypress tree being buried during a massive inland tsunami. Possibly the Chicxulub impact.

This would make an excellent addition to any prehistoric display.


I found this tree in North East Texas behind a very old Estate. From the information I have, we believe it was dragged out of a forest near there and put behind the old home as a decoration. This happened over 100 years ago in 1908-1910. It sat there all this time half buried and on its side. So no one except the homeowners knew it existed.


I had to purchase a special hydraulic tilting trailer and mounted a powerful electric winch on it. I then used a harness and snatch block to slowly draw it up on the trailer. We barely made it! It just happened to be raining and that helped it slide up a little easier. It weighs tons!


We have not had it formally identified as of yet but the consensus is that it is Cypress. It is solid and was not reconstructed from pieces like the CALLIXYLON TREE in Oklahoma.

It is not brittle and will not break or fall apart. Those cracks and marks you see are on the surface only. You would have to use a jackhammer to break it apart. I know this because I have handled it and it’s strong!


It shows signs of having quartzite mineralization but we are not willing to alter or slice it to see what it looks like inside.


It is truly a natural treasure.

As of 8-7-2021 I have over 26k views and 129 watchers on the listing so I believe it’s only a matter of time.


I have had a lot of interest from different institutions but most are looking for donations.

I wanted to offer it up for private ownership and I really believe it’s always going to be worth exactly what someone is willing to pay.

I therefore added a best offer option on the listing. I set the minimum offer at a quarter of a million to deter any goofballs that offer me $100 bucks for it. I’m looking for serious offers.


Please see all photos for accurate measurements.


Please feel free to correspond with me with ideas for it’s future ownership. I would hate to have it remain in my yard, on my private ranch, where no one can see it without an invitation. Some of the ideas that I have received are as follows….

Make a throne out of it.

Carve the worlds largest wooden Indian (petrified Indian)

Use it for the centerpiece in a water feature.

Use it as a headstone. Memorial.

Slice tabletops out of it.

As a sign in front of a rock shop.

Museums make offers!


Interested parties are encouraged to come see it in person. It is located in Bulverde Tx. No amount of descriptive text or photos do it justice. Please feel free to ask me any questions about the Petrified Tree, my progress selling it, shipping, or any other concerns you may have.

My shipping price is just an estimate. I will oversee it’s safe delivery anywhere in the world personally. Buyer will be responsible for all shipping costs.

Thank you. Please buy my tree! 🤗
