Even though the earth is 2/3 water, only 3/10 of one percent is suitable for domestic use.

How to make money from deadhead logs

In the late 19th century loggers cut centuries-old trees and float them downstream to the nearest mill, but many of the heaviest logs sank to the riverbed and became what is known as "deadhead logs".
Although the outside decomposes after being underwater for more than a century, resin keeps the inside perfectly preserved.
Compared to other wood flooring options, the recovered wood is stronger, healthier,and takes on a much richer color and tone. Best of all, it is 100% heart, which makes it harder and more stable than the young woods used for new hardwood flooring today.
