Fossil Grove

A trunk and tree stump from fossilised Lepidodendron trees at Fossil Grove.

The tree stump seen here is one of eleven stumps preserved at Fossil Grove in Victoria Park, Whiteinch. The trees seem to have died during flooding of their habitat 330 million years ago and are preserved in their original growth position. The flood waters deposited plant debris such as the long trunk shown in the photograph among the tree stumps. Over time the whole area became fossilised.
