What could be the value of river recovered oak, that is more then 1,000 years old?

Any idea's? Who could appreciate and buy that?

Hi George:

Google "Underwater Logging" and you'll see a variety of companies who specialize in salvaging logs from lakes and rivers throughout the United States. Most of these companies mill the logs to produce high-end lumber with tight growth rings for sale to a variety of clients who unique tastes for "wood with a story."

Best of luck!
