Uki Saw Mill a Biocharians dream come true

Wood Pile from UKI saw mill


Today a friend and I went on a MAN tour of our local sawmill. It was such a great place. Some of the fattest logs I have ever seen where getting cut in half by the biggest saw blade I had ever seen. This place is fantastic from more than one perspective. It is an old school mill where the men didn’t even need gloves their hands were so tuff. Big Man sheds and Bigger Man toys like a monster log pickeruperer but nothing bigger or better to this Biocharian than the waste wood pile that the boys said I can take as much wood as I can carry all day everyday what a complete dream.

Check out the photos….

    Hello Cliff,

    I use anything I can get my hands on have you seen my free videos ? http://www.biocharproject.org/videos
    Currently we are building a masonary Adam retort which can hold 1 tonne of biomass pretty exciting.

    I have used Bigchar 1000 , Beginner char Mk1 and Mk2, Toocan, Rising phoneix (project 540), 22in44,
    many other ones without names. I am addicted and can not get enough of Biochar so I started an Industry : )

    Hope you will join me

    Dear Mr Dolph,
    We produce biochar on a much greater scale. We would like to market our product at $350 per cubic meter. Do you think this is a fair price and do you know anyone who would like to use some in crop trials.
