Other than it is petrified wood, need a good pic of the end grain to go further. I have some petrified white pine that looks similar.

looks like it may be a non-resinouse type perhaps, cedar is out as it was one of the already chosen and redwood might not exist in Arizona.

Giant Sequoia, Sierra Redwood Sequoiadendron giganteum
Found this piece laying in a pile of rejects from an old shingle making operation in the national forest while walking to see the Boole Tree in 1996, probably from trees cut down between 1908 and 1912. The big clue is that there are about 70-80 rings/inch if you count them. Another clue would have been this is not a cut surface, but a shatter fracture, probably from when the tree was felled, very typical of sequoias, which had to be featherbedded when they were dropped to keep them from exploding when they landed. An old building in Sequoia Natl Park that  was built on the original timber claim in the 1850's or 60's (can't remember) has sequoia shakes still in good condition well over 100 years later. Too bad they don't seem to plant sequoias in the old forest. Almost all pines planted there now. Near the Boole Tree, lots of second growth sequoias seeded in, already 2-3 ft thick and 100 ft tall. I think they should be managing for sequoias there.

Your cross cut view showed the growth rings and I counted 19-20 in a quarter inch .... the growth rings where a very good clue and the typical fractures at the ring transitions helped give it away and are confirmed by the original photo :christmas: :new_year:
