What is Bog Oak?
Bog Oak is not a species of tree, rather it is a term given to the oak found in the peat bogs of Great Britain and Ireland. Low oxygen conditions in peat bogs help preserve the wood from normal decay, and the acidic conditions combine with the natural tannins in the wood to give Bog Oak its distinctive and pleasing colour. It is essential in the early stages of fossilization, and many samples of Bog Oak are hundreds if not thousands of years old. A very sought-after material indeed!
