Buried Swamp

| View Cart ⇗ | Info

Ancient cedar trees were found buried beneath the Dennisvill swamp in southern New Jersey. It was believed the perculiar action of water and wind kept these trees in the same stage of decay as when they fell. This discovery resulted in the novel business of “mining cedar trees".
