Small scale charcoal production in the arboretum

Easily one of the most straight forward ways of making charcoal with an aim to having an extremely high recovery rate. Twigs as small as 1/8" can be fully carbonised. This is one mitigating technique to increasing efficiency in areas currently under going intense charcoal production. it also localizes the area of carbonization and reduces land lost to the 'scorched earth' phenomenon.
