Luhasoo bog in Estonia. The mire has tussocks of heather, and is being colonised by pine trees.

This is a list of bogs, wetland mires that accumulate peat from dead plant material, usually sphagnum moss.[1] Bogs are sometimes called quagmires (technically all bogs are quagmires while not all quagmires are necessarily bogs) and the soil which composes them is sometimes referred to as muskeg; alkaline mires are called fens rather than bogs.
