Driftwood is actually pretty common on shores. I’ve found plenty from the California coast to the Gulf of Mexico.
Since it’s wood that has been washed onto a shore or beach of a sea or river by the action of winds, tides, waves or man, it’s pretty common because there is (unfortunately) so much debris that enters our oceans. Most driftwood is the remains of trees, in whole or part, that have been washed into the ocean, due to flooding, high winds, or other natural occurrences.
One of the best times to find driftwood is after a storm, after a period of strong winds, or after a large amount of wave activity. In some places driftwood can be a navigational hazard in bays and inlets. Some communities pick up the driftwood that washes to shore so that it does not cause boat traffic issues. Driftwood has been used to make sculptures and furniture.
