This is any kind of wood debris caught in rotating ocean currents and deposited on the shorelines or beaches of the world. They may be found on the banks of rivers, lakes, on beaches or by the sea side. Nothing is wasted by nature and although old dried up wood may be unsightly for some humans, animal life benefits from it as a habitat for birds, such as sea gulls, beavers utilize it in the making of dams and it is also a quiet retreat for fish escaping the predators of the sea. Major Sources of sea borne wood There are various sources from which wood coming out of the sea is derived. Some as a result of trees uprooted during a flood, during violent windstorms as in tornadoes, tsunamis or from cyclones. They may arise from the flotsam and jetsam of shipwrecked ocean going vessels. Flotsam refers to the remains of wooden crafts such as ships and boats and jetsam to the wooden kegs and cargoes lost from ships at sea.
