Peat is cut for fuel, for horticultural products (compost) and water filtrations and sanitisation. Peat cutting may be carried out by machine on a large industrial scale or at the other extreme by hand to provide domestic fuel.
In many countries peat extraction is discouraged because of peat's importance as a carbon sink and because peat extraction has destroyed many natural ecosystems. Peat is created naturally very slowly so former worked areas may still be apparent decades after extraction has ceased. Use disused:landuse=turbuary for these.
