[W] Peat is laid down in a range of natural features. The rights to cut and harvest peat are known as turbary rights, and historically such places were known as Turbaries (cognate german word Torfmoor) hence the name of the tag.

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=turbary for these.

In general the source of the peat should be ascertained and the appropriate natural=* used. Examples are:
