H Bog Oak wood is a rare timber which is excavated from deep underground, usually as a by-product of turf cutting, or when bogland is drained for agricultural use. The wood varies in age, usually ranging between 2,000 and 6,000 years old and it has been preserved due to the unique conditions of the Turf bogs in Ireland. It waterlogs the wood and keeps it free from oxygen and sunlight, which would cause it to decay. The chemistry of the Bog also reacts with the wood and transforms its color from jet black to a very dark brown.We are not experts but we describe our items to the best of our ability.
