Your specimen is probably just a rock. Knowing the location and if there are ring like structures in the cross sectional view might change my opinion. I have seen petrified wood from New Jersey, USA that has a similar appearance.

I have some example of petrified wood and one that isnt. enter image description hereand this isnt enter image description here
