Nesquin Ghost Forest; A place full of old tree stumps

Nesquin Ghost Forest America is the world’s most mysterious log forest Trees are about 2000 years old. Join us in this interesting and readable article to know where the forest of Nesquin ghosts is and get acquainted with its secrets.

There is a small seaside town called Nesquin in Tilamuk. For about 300 years, remnants of the old Tisca poplar forest were hidden under the sand until, in the winter of 1997-98, when a severe storm swept through the Oregon area, they emerged from under the sand. The storm destroyed part of the coast. It was at this time that more than a hundred tree trunks covered with oysters appeared. Before the stumps appeared that winter, the stumps were the only legend that, according to locals, appeared every few decades for a short time. But since the winter of 1998, the ghost forest has become a permanent part of the coast.

Researchers estimate that the Nesquin jungle logs are about 2,000 years old and were about 60-45 meters high during their lifetime. Carbon biometrics also show that the forest was destroyed between 1680 and 1720. Researchers believe that the cause of deforestation was an earthquake and a tsunami in the northwest. Researchers looking at ancient Japanese manuscripts found that only one tsunami struck between 1680 and 1720, drowning many villages.

It has now been proven that a massive earthquake that struck the Oregon area in 1700 caused the trees of the Nesquin forest to sink in the mud. Then, shortly after a large wave of water hit the trees, they were cut down near their bases. Over time, tidal sludge adhered to tree trunks, protecting them from oxygen and bacterial rot. Until in 1998 these stumps appeared underwater. The forest of ghosts, although not very famous, is a very attractive and spectacular place.
