Peat Bog Restoration
Restoration of peat bogs is an integral part of the operation at
Berger Peat Moss. For years the Berger team in conjunction with
other organizations has played a major role in the restoration of
peat bogs in Quebec and New Brunswick
The goal of restoration is to re-establish the ecology of the wetland




                                                                        (Eng. Version 01-2009)
after harvesting and provide the environment that will lead to a
functional peat accumulating ecosystem as it was before harvesting.
This is accomplished in a matter of a few years by using a modern
ecological approach instituted and funded by Berger
