    Oak Island Treasure

    What...No Tree Roots?

    It appears there are no protruding Roots!

    Logic... would have whom ever dug it, would have had to cut away the roots from the trees shown to dig this pit and if these trees are still alive they should have regrown their Roots back into this Pit.

    No roots are shown in the pit.

    The Tree Rings of one of these trees would then indicate roughly the time line when this Pit was dug.

    I have never seen a square well hole either. BTW those trees are not too old. Maybe they're just pop ups.

    I think it's an old cistern. There's 3 on the place I live on, one round and lined with field rock, one oval ,lined with brick, and one rectangled, line with cut limestone. They seem like they would make great copperhead factories. But I'm jumpy that way.

    As others have stated, the trees are not that old (possibly 20 years old but more likely 15 years or less) but the hole is much, much older! There are no roots in the hole because as the trees grew up around it and especially the one partially growing over the side of the hole, learned a long time ago, that there is no soil and water in the void and it's roots grew outward away from the hole. Sure, within the tree's first 5 years of life, it likely threw out some feeder roots in search of life sustaining soil and water but the roots died and fell into the hole due to lack of anything to sustain them. By the way, the tree that is partially growing over the side of the hole, appears to be a Wild Black Cherry based on it's bark and their' roots are well known for growing around obstructions and voids that contain no soil or water!

    when i use to deer and elk hunt i was in Wyoming up on a mountain there was a shaft like this under where a log cabin used to be. It seems like the person or persons living there mined in the winter time.

    IMAUDIGGER PLEASE be careful shafts like this can have a lot of DEADLY Vapors in them. (decaying animals examples for one ) People have lost there lives because they was over come by deadly gasses

    I know a couple of politicians that I'd gladly volunteer to send down to check this hole out........rope would be optional. Lol Seriously, I hope you can find out what this is or was. Just be careful in the investigative process. Interesting.

    It depends on the neck of the woods you are in.. I have seen trees smaller than that that are over 100 years old.

    It is best as one grows older to strip oneself of possessions, to shed oneself downward like a tree, to be almost wholly earth before one dies.

    You bet Brad. Question is, if something is in the hole that weighs 500 lbs, how in the hell are two lightweights going to get it out?

    Yeah, old well.
    I agree with Scorpio. When I hunted deer I use to find them all the time. Just because there is not a pile of dirt there doesn't mean anything. It would wash away over the years. May be the old homestead near by.
    When you come to a fork in the road, take it.
