The density in kg/cu meter by common types of peat:
sphangnum moss 170-220
hypnum moss 480-580
Or pounds/cubic yard:
sphangnum moss 286-371 hypnum moss 809-977 reed-sedge 943-1011 Humus 1348-1786
Or lastly, we have cubic yards required for one ton (2000 pounds):
sphangnum moss 286-371 or between 6.99 and 5.39 cubic yards to make a tonhypnum moss 809-977 or between 2.47 and 2.05 cubic yards to make a tonreed-sedge 943-1011 or between 2.12 and 1.98 cubic yards to make a tonHumus 1348-1786 or between 1.48 and 1.12 cubic yards to make a tonThis gives us a rough guide stick to figure processing and harvesting estimates.
