Thank you Bone.  I had no idea.  My dad will be 96 in a couple of weeks and just trying to help him clean things up 
It's not always as it seems

Be very careful about selling P wood.  There are a ton of regulations on it depending on where it was collected etc.  Washington state in particular.  I have no idea who enforces it. Just warning you to be careful.

I donít think thatís correct, it is treated as any other rock. You must have a legal right to own it, and selling material collected on public land per hobby laws can bring scrutiny.

It is vertebrate fossils which have heavy protection

Note I said be careful, not donít do it.   Here is an example of Wa and Oregon rules

PETRIFIED WOOD: Petrified wood is available for collection on a free use basis in limited quantities as long as the collection is for personal, non-commercial purposes. According to Federal regulations (43 CFR 3622), free use collection weights are limited to 25 pounds plus one piece per day, not to exceed 250 pounds in one calendar year, and no specimen greater than 250 pounds may be collected without a special permit. The petrified wood must be for personal use only, and shall not be sold or bartered to commercial dealers. A material sale contract must be obtained from a BLM Field Office for collection of more than 250 pounds a year, or for commercial use. Mining claims may not be staked for petrified wood.

Yeah that's a nicely tumbled piece of the banded stuff! Looks just like the Palouse stuff I have. Mine is just more fractured but is the exact same colors and patterns for that type of wood. I'm just not sure what type of wood it is!

That's a really cool piece!
