Thick wood chips on a temporary access road through a peatland provided a unique operational opportunity to test an adaption of the peat inversion process. The thick layer of wood chips on top of original peat prevented natural revegetation, while the chemistry and hydrology of surrounding peat is minimally affected by their presence.

This video showcases the process of excavating and burying wood chips underneath decompacted peat, producing a saturated peat substrate suitable for natural regeneration of peatland vegetation from nearby sources.
