When local salvage operators realized that a treasure trove of perfectly preserved redwood lay under the murky waters of the river, they set about "reclaiming" it.

 

Question: What does "Reclaiming Sinker Logs" mean exactly?

Answer: It is the process of raising old growth redwood trees that sunk hundreds of years ago.

Question: What do they do with the reclaimed wood?

Answer: It is for sale of course!

Question: Isn't the wood rotten?

Answer: No, in fact the murky river bottoms actually preserve these massive trees.
