bogwood-le morta

The bogwood also known as "Morta"is a fossilised tree trunk that we recover from the bottom of the bogs and rivers in Europe.

Preserved from decay in up to 10 meters deep, and deprived of oxygen, the wood became very dark, stained by the tannins dissolved in the acidic waters.

Bog wood usually came from various tree species, growing in bogs or near, but the most popular are the oak "QUERQUS - BOG OAK", and the pine "PINUS".
We can consider that the bog wood is actually the first stage of the fossilisation of wood.
