Florissant Plant Fossils

Recently, my cousin returned from Florissant, Colorado with this fossil plate from the late Eocene Epoch Florissant Formation as a gift.  As best I can tell the first fossil shown is a leaf of maybe a Fagopsis or Cedrelospermum.

The next picture appears to be a piece of white cedar (Chamaecyparis) tree. Thanks again to Kenny for the gift.
