Making Charcoal

One of my favorite non-timber forest products, is charcoal.

You will find photos of charcoal manufacture, from Eucalyptus citriodora wood in Brazil here

Burning wood in the absence of oxygen results in incomplete combustion, thus creating charcoal.  In addition to charcoal, which is sold packaged in the marketplace, tars are also recovered during the process.
