Biochar in the Woods

LEARN HOW TO USE BIOCHAR FOR FOREST RESILIENCE & CARBON SEQUESTRATION

Given the ongoing drought and dangerous wildfire conditions throughout the west, there is an urgent need to train more people on clean techniques to convert problem forest vegetation into biochar onsite. Biochar helps mitigate the wildfire threat by increasing forest soil water-holding capacity and resilience.

Who Should Attend? Forestry contractors, arborists, workforce supervisors, forest land owners, and staff from environmental NGOs and natural resource agencies who supervise forestry workers, or develop biochar forestry projects and programs.
