I think another important question to ask would be, "What type of event submerged this forest?"

I feel Olivine brought up a great point and I didn't catch it in the begining. Who the hell was cutting down 2 meter diameter cypress trees 52,000 years ago?

Thought I would add something that was told to me today by an elderly farmer whom still work's his land and is in his 80's, this elderly gentleman is a typical Lancashire Farmer and not the type to be given overly to flights of imagination so the gentleman told me today that on his farm there are peat beds and while draining one they took over 700 tons of trees from under the peat, He also said that there are trees everywhere under his peat and that of his neighbours and they appear to have all been blown over in the exact same direction but are under several meters of bog, SO a whole forest of trees now buried in recent geological history and a major climate change were the area was much wetter afterwards favouring bog land (Temperate swamps) and peat formation.

Not trying to be snippy at all here, but weren't there giant beavers in existence back then? Even the ones we have now can decimate a surprising amount of trees.
