The Other Coal: Hardwood Charcoal

Learn how landowners can improve their woods while creating a revenue stream.
Charcoal making played an important role in the industrial history of America, and its impact on our forests still can be seen today. The iron industry depended entirely on wood charcoal for smelting and smithing until coal slowly replaced it as the fuel of choice in the late 1800s. From New England through much of the Mid-Atlantic, colliers employed large labor forces to clear as many as four acres of woodlands each day for wood to make charcoal for a single iron furnace.
