Underwater Logging (was Ice storm...)

The real value of these logs was the unusual grain density that occured in old
growth forests.  Because these trees had to over come a large canopy of old
growth,  they required many, many years more to acheive full size.  This meant
that the amount a growth each year was less than the plantation typeof tree 
farming wee see today.  These conditions resulted in wood with unparrelled
density and weight.  Those trees that sunk in the great lakes are unlike any
trees we will ever cut again.
