Bog Oak is not a specific species of wood, it is a term for oak that has been buried in a peat bog for thousands of years. The wood is protected from decay by the anaerobic conditions. The distinct dark brown to almost black color comes from the acidic water and other minerals reacting with the tannins in the wood.
