Bog Oak, also spelled bogwood or bog wood, also known as abonos and, especially amongst pipe smokers, as morta. Brown Oak, is not a specific species, but is rather a term that designates oak that has been buried in a peat bog for hundreds or sometimes thousands of years. The extremely low oxygen conditions of the bog protect the wood from normal decay, while the underlying peat provides acidic conditions where iron salts and other minerals react with the tannins in the wood, gradually giving it a distinct dark brown to almost black color.
Since there is such a limited supply of the wood - with Bog Oak essentially being the very early stages of fossilization - prices for this type of wood are very high.
