OFW's listen up. Buying a few seeds and having a forestry management foundation plant them for you and assure their growth can bring you untold wealth and financial security with a mortgage, before you have to pay for college tuition and before you reach normal retirement, which the trees will help pay for also.

Thank you very much, I'll check it out.
Forest biochar is created using low oxygen and if efficient the gas emissions are burned in the process, thus creating an environmentally favorable process. This process produces mostly activated carbon, a gram of which has more surface area than a football field, so the spreading of 2 kg per square meter onto the forest floor greatly enhances the char's absorption of CO2 from the atmosphere. In turn the feeding of it to the tree through its root system, obviously at ground level. The reciprocation from the tree increases the output of oxygen into the atmosphere. YES THIS HELPS THE FARMER... Continue reading
