Yesterday I posted pictures of a massive tree trunk that is being washed out of the peat on the beach at Whiteford Sands. It is lying on its side. Next to it are the remains of a clump of smaller trees. [I have indicated their positions with arrows in a context shot below]. The trees were growing close together. Only the stumps survive but they are preserved upright in their life position, complete with root systems penetrating downwards through the peat. I noticed for the first time in preparing these photographs for the post that someone has very neatly and professionally cut off one of the tree roots; this may substantiate my assumption that someone is in fact carrying out research on the newly emerging trees of this submerged forest.
