Most probably some of the old trees witnessed the arrival of R1b in Wales (and Britain and Atlantic Western Europe) and imagine the impact of a continuous flooding and recessing land in the social, economic and political structure of the local populations. The ecological disaster probably helped or even caused the R1b migration or invasion to Britain and Atlantic Western Europe at that conjuncture because even a tribal complex society depends heavily on the logistic and military features of the Littoral and water (sea or riverine) communications, fishing, seafood as a very important prehistoric habitat for human concentrations.

Looking at some of the pictures of the tree-stumps I'm very surprised at the quality of the cuts - almost look like modern chainsaw profiles. Are the scientists sure of the date?

There must have been drowned forests all around the shores of Europe as the sea level rose following the LGM. That kind of event was also discussed in the book "Eden in the East", where it was talking about what is now Indonesia.

Yes, I think modern people tend to forget that thick bush existed to the sea shores, and it wasn't confined just to Europe.
