Stumps of white pine ranging from 1-10 in. in diameter and rooted in peat 1-2 ft. thick were exposed as a result of scouring in 1955 at Wells Beach, Maine. Radiocarbon dates are 2,810 + or - 200 and 2,980 + or - 180 years. Two occurrences of intertidal stumps at Kennebunk Beach, Maine, were 1,280 + or - 200 (red pine) and 3,250 + or - 200 (white pine). The ages of the stumps indicate that a lower sea level prevailed for an undetermined length of time prior to about 3,000 years ago.
