Grow and make your own charcoal in half the time at half the cost!

An indigenous acacia tree can start producing, with less the 800mm of rain per year, up to one bag of good charcoal using only the branches under a coppicing regime within appx.10 years.

It's never too late or too far to start planting your own wood-energy.
you can even use mazie cobs to make charcoal! 
no need to bother with expensive briquetting - just the the branch charcoal as is! 

Nor should it be too expensive, 1pkt of Kenya Seeds of Change costs only 100ksh, in it you get over 300 seeds of 3 types of hardy high value acacia trees. Using direct seeding methods reduces your planting costs to as little as 6khs per tree.



And by using an modern mini-kiln - you can now make your own charcoal from only the branches and twigs from trees - or even maize cobs and coconut husk!!
