Bog Oak

Bog Oak

No, this wood isn't stained black. 5,000 years in a peat bog in the Ukraine have naturally turned these huge ancient oak trees black all the way through. At the end of the last ice age, rising water levels caused huge oak forests throughout Europe to die standing and fall into the muck. For the last 3,500 - 5,000 years these trees have been preserved in anaerobic conditions underneath peat bogs. The ages have turned bog oak a deep black with dark brown grain. This is the result of a chemical reaction occurring between the tannins in the oak and soluble irons present in the bog soil.
