Underwater Cypress Forest Hole

 | By GSpots on 7/10/2013 12:00:00 AM | Views (2097)

This underwater cypress forest is estimated to be 52,000 years old. They were buried in sediment, but were likely uncovered by Hurricane Katrina in 2005.

 

The stumps of the cypress trees span an area estimated at 0.5 square miles (1.3 kilometers), approximately 10 miles off the beach, and sit about 60 feet (18 meters) below the surface of the Gulf of Mexico.

 

The forest had become an artificial reef, attracting fish, crustaceans, sea anemones and other underwater life burrowing between the roots of the cypress stumps.

 

The location of this spot is centered on the hole in the sonar image. Actual stumps should be on the banks in this area.
