|sofasurfer||A google would probably tell you what kind of tree did grow there and if its a type found elsewhere I would not feel cheated if you used that type. Or maybe a ebay search would turn up a piece of petrified wood from there that could be incorporated.|

I'm pretty sure at best lichen and moss for the last couple million yrs. |
What about shipwreck timber? That might be more feasible. Or maybe something growing in one of the stations, like a palm or something.

Trees do not grow there now. |
Taken from Tree line - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia ...
* Antarctic tree line
The southernmost latitude in the Southern Hemisphere where trees can grow; further south, it is too cold to sustain trees. It is a theoretical concept that does not have any defined location. No trees grow in Antarctica or the sub-antarctic islands. This tree line would be the southernmost point in the environment at which trees can no longer grow, except there are no landmasses that have a true treeline analogous to the arctic treeline.
Trees used to grow there long ago...
