Irish Peatland and Bogs – Ireland - Bog Oak - Oak and other trees that are found in bogs are preserved. Some of them have been there for centuries, but because there is no oxygen, the wood doesn’t rot. When peat is harvested, the old oak is exposed. The material is highly prized. It has been used to carve things. You can find jewelry and other things on Etsy made of Bog Oak.
