What Lies Beneath The Waters In This South Carolina River Is Amazing… And Valuable

Did you know there are giant logs harvested more than 100 years ago from virgin timber in South Carolina now resting in our riverbeds, lakes and swamps? For years, a few companies throughout the Carolinas have been reclaiming this wood that has been perfectly preserved for all this time beneath the waters of South Carolina.

Today, timber is South Carolina’s #1 renewable commodity. Not much has changed in the last century or more. Timber has always been a big industry in South Carolina.

Did you know this beautiful and valuable resource was resting at the bottom of our rivers, swamps and lakes in South Carolina?
