"The sap still smells fresh"



Notice how bored the interviewer sounds.

"The stumps are between six and eight feet in diameter."

The samples they collected on Raines's first dive contain more than 400 tree rings, but Harley expects to find 1,500 or more rings on each full stump. So many rings would indicate that the forest thrived two millennia before sea level rise buried it deep beneath the ocean floor.

Old news apparently

Lucas- I remember reading about this last year or two. Hurricane Katrina uncovered this Fossil Forest off Alabama and it was really interesting. I guess someone will make a film documentary on it. I hope so anyway, not everyone can Dive on something like that. Northwestern Florida has something similar called the Timberhole, people have been diving it for years. I would imagine that just about all coastal states would have some buried? What do you think? Larry

It is likely common and just has not been explored like most things under water.

There is a 5000 year submerged forest here for example.
