Background information and definitions
After pipelines have been dug in the surface of peatlands, peat could be replaced on top. This would provide the opportunity for peatland vegetation to redevelop.
Key peatland types where this action may be appropriate: bogs, fens/fen meadows, tropical peat swamps.
Related actions: rewetting, because peatlands may be drained to allow pipeline construction; filling/blocking other types of ditches, trenches or gullies; general habitat creation and restoration, to restore vegetation following replacement of peat.
