I agree with John. There are people who make a decent living pulling logs out of lakes, ponds. They even made a reality show episode with that Shelby Swamp guy, (I think on History), of him pulling logs out of the bayou. I’ve seen a lot of logs pulled from lakes, properly dried, going for up to 8,000-10,000 dollars a pop in the right market. Of course, these were pretty big logs, maybe 30 feet long, 12-18 inches in diameter.
The problem is that you need certification of it actually being pulled. (What lake, species of wood, who dried it, who certified it to be underwater, how long, etc.) There are people out there who are actively trying to duplicate the look with above growth trees, and charging the same amount.
