This tutorial will explain how to create an entirely seamless texture in Photoshop. This technique was made to work for textures, not patterns (things with a distinguishable "design" to them).

Texture comes from: :iconladydove7-stock: (thank you!)

If you want to follow along with the tutorial, here's a direct link to the bark texture.

Oh. It's just an image. You can view it right here. Or, if you go to "download" it, it'll just show you the image for you to right click > save as... and put on your computer that way.

Hope this helps!
