Hello everyone, I am sharing some plans for a highly efficient way to burn trees. It can quickly be assembled around the base of any tree to convert its mass into energy. Feel free to modify and share, thank you.

Some sort of moveable dwelling could be placed around the whole thing and moved from tree to tree throughout the winter providing a family with free central heating.

Josh : Damn you think BIG ! I am a little afraid of this adaptation, if it works 1/2 as well as expected, you would end up with a 60' tall candle. This would
quickly transform into a Crown fire and leap from tree top to tree top, this would potentially create its own chimney effect and winds that would transport
flaming embers 100s or even 1000s of yards away, endangering whole forests !

If you cut down the tree leaving a 6' high stump and safely removed the tree from near Your Rocket Stump Burner this might be a good way to deal with
extreme stump issues- However, A six foot high stump generally gives you terrific leverage to pry that stump out of the ground and burying the woody
mass in the base of a hugleculture mound would seem to be a better use of your resources.

While in this case it was easy to find several potential problems with this build I am greatly impressed with your ability to think way outside the box -Please
dont hesitate to share any other future ideas, remember a rising tide floats ALL Boats !

Fro the good of the Crafts! Big AL

If you are using a rototiller, you are doing it wrong. Even on this tiny ad:
