Scuba divers have discovered a primeval underwater forest off the coast of Alabama, according to Live Science.

The site reports the Bald Cypress forest was buried under ocean sediments, protected in an oxygen-free environment for more than 50,000 years, but was likely uncovered by Hurricane Katrina in 2005.



The forest contains trees so well-preserved that when they are cut, they still smell like fresh Cypress sap, one diver told Live Science.
