Hello

Someone just recently cut down a couple of Eucalyptus trees and my dad and I are getting all the wood. On site there is some 3 week wood chippings too. Is there any use for the chipping besides landscaping. I am trying to think of how to make charcoal out of it with a 55 gallon metal drum?

Google the jolly rogers biochar retort.
Not set up for  using the excess heat, but a tried and true TLUD/ retort system.

One thing to consider, you will need the woodchips to be well dried out for either use.
