The phenomenon of the ancient forest
These fossilized forest remains became an integral part of the beach on the Pacific coast less than 20 years ago, when the area of the American town of Neskovin, Oregon, was subjected to a powerful storm.
Since the time of the bad weather, a ghostly forest appeared from under the sand, and is now considered a local landmark. Residents of the neighborhood say that earlier the relics of relic trees also sometimes appeared above the surface of the beach. However, their number was not so massive and after a while the stumps disappeared again, becoming a real legend of these places. The age of the remains is estimated at about 2000 years. Also, scientists managed to find out the approximate date of the transformation of a real forest into a ghostly one. It happened in 1700, when the area of modern Oregon was shaken by a powerful earthquake.
But I have a question: what about the roots? Not so for 2000 years in such a sandy soil, these roots have not lost strength and hemp is not just washed on the coast? In general, I would have cut off a couple of stumps and made crafts from them.Imagine - you have at home wooden figurines that are over 2000 years old.
