Origin and location of Morta

Second marsh in France after Camargue, Briere is in the Loire Atlantique on the peninsula of Guérande. It is in this marsh that found Morta.
Highly mineralized, the dead wood is a fossil. Hard and very dark, it is difficult to work. The wood is dense and loaded with silica.
5000 years ago, Briere was a forest consisting mainly of oaks. As a result of landslides, the forest was gradually buried by the Atlantic Ocean. These transgressions and regressions of the ocean has gradually shaped the marsh. Lying in the mud deposited by the ocean, the trees are slowly fossilized.
They are now found buried in peat. Black and spongy at the time of extraction, the dead must dry for several months in the ground before being worked. He has a strong tendency to split as it dries. That is why the morta must be protected from the sun, heat and rain. On one track from the marsh, only 10% will be used. This makes its rarity.
Difficult to exploit, for always buried in peat. It is therefore necessary to remove it, wait for the dry season to reach it.
