Red Pine gr.


• Early Holocene submerged forest bed in Lake Huron This is one of the Mid Holocene drowned forest locations clustering near the northern Michigan shores on Lake Huron. Stumps were found at 20-25 feet of water about 30 miles north of Thunder Bay. The site was located and sampled in 2012 with the help of NOAA divers led by Captain Luke Clyburn. One 51-ring sample of red pine was dated with radiocarbon to ca. 8370-8410 Cal Yrs BP. This is the oldest submerged forest bed found in Lake Huron so far.
