Description

This block is from a stump that was found by a pipeline crew while they were digging a pipeline. The massive 12,000 lbs stump was 30 ft below the surface. According to a researcher that studies the Living Ancient Cypress on the Black River in North Carolina, this was a significant find. He encouraged us to send a small core sample of the center of the stump to get it radiocarbon dated. He also stated that this was an ancient forest that use be where the Mississippi River use to run a thousand + years ago. After milling the massive stump in Texas, we took a sample from the center slab and sent it off to a lab in Washington that performs radiocarbon dating (Direct AMS). Three weeks later the results came back and the results revealed that the stump dated back to 181 B.C (which is 2,200 years ago).
