A Big Win at Drew Biochar

One of the big winners from our Drew Biochar Project is forest soil organisms of the present and future. The standard alternative to our approach of burning forest slash material in kilns is to pile and burn it in place. Hundreds of small burn scars can really have an impact on forest soils and their inhabitants. The picture below tells the story: From: Slash from the past: Rehabilitating pile burn scars.
