Biochar

If you pyrolyze wood, you make charcoal.

If you add charcoal to compost, you can produce biochar, a powerful soil conditioner that helps healthy growth of diverse plants, provides drought-tolerance and remediates (heals) contaminations, such as:

  • heavy metals
  • antibiotics
  • herbicides
  • pesticides

Fire

Redwood is easy to start a fire with, so it is a good kindling.

However, in a fire it crackles and is smoky, so it is recommended to incorporate other forms of wood to feed the full fire.

Please practice fire safety!

Fire can be beneficial to gardens by producing charcoal, which can be added to compost to produce a powerful remediation agent: biochar compost.

Optimize for producing charcoal by putting your fire out by pouring water on it or covering with dirt.
