Bog Oak: Rarer than diamonds

Havwoods recently introduced new Bog Oak patterns to its Handgrade Premier collection. Born from ancient trees that once thrived in the valleys of Europe and have subsequently fallen into peat bogs, this wood has been preserved and transformed over centuries.

The range of striking new patterns includes Chevron, Herringbone, Versailles, Plank and Wide Plank, with each board bearing the weight of history in its every grain. Ranging from 3,000 to 8,000 years old, the darker the Bog Oak, the older the tree. The wood’s deep, ebony hues are complemented by intricate patterns, a testament to the passage of time and the resilience of nature – it is truly wood that tells a story.

Ranging up to 4m in length and up to nearly half a metre in width for the oversize board, Handgrade Premier are specialised planks which are produced to order. Offering a high quality, high performance, pre-finished engineered board of multi-layered ply construction, the collection is designed for modern living in mind. The boards are FSC® (FSC-COO9500) Certified Timber, with the entire range being suitable for underfloor heating.
