Making Charcoal with the Exeter Retort ~ by WoodlandsTV

Slow connection? Watch in lower quality

Alan and Jo Waters are expert charcoal makers with many years experience of this traditional skill from the land they coppice. Here they speak about the benefits of charcoal production using the Exeter Retort. They join with Geoff Self and Robin Rawle, designers and manufacturers of this Retort, to explain their experiences of the benefits of this method compared to traditional ring kilns – that the Retort produces more charcoal, that it has a shorter burn time, is cleaner, more efficient, easily accessible and transportable, and that it ultimately produces better quality charcoal – ideal for small woodland owners. wildwoodcoppice@btinternet.com http://www.carboncompost.co.uk/ An Adliberate film http://www.adliberate.co.uk for WoodlandsTV http://www.woodlands.co.uk/tv

That's some beautiful charcoal. How long do you season the wood before hand?

Stop waiting for the government to tell you how you have to live your life. The people should be TELLING the government how they ARE going to live their lives.
