During construction of the Folsom Dam in the early 1950’s, the flora on what would become the lake bed behind the dam was cut down and burned by the Army Corp of Engineers. Large trees were cut down, but the tree stumps were left behind. For most of the past 60 years, these well-preserved stumps have been underwater except during extreme drought cycles such as this year.
