Is sphagnum the most important plant on earth? We think it is! Watch this video to find out why sphagnum carbon-capturing qualities can help us fight climate change @NatResWales @EU_ENV @LIFEprogramme @visitsnowdonia @WelshGovernment @wgmin_rural https://t.co/pBi6HN7EyR

Our oldest trees are (arguably) 2,000 years old; our oldest peat bog has been storing Sphagnum moss carbon for 20,000 years. 'Ancient' forest is defined as 600 years old; our 'typical' peat bogs are 2,000 to 8,000 years old, storing more carbon than even the original wildwood. https://t.co/rXFyAhU2ef
