Charcoal making was highly developed in the 19th century for the needs of blacksmithing. Today, this craft is almost extinct, only a handful of charcoal burners are engaged in it. To place the mound, it was necessary to choose a suitable space on the forest floor. The most suitable were open plains with a water source nearby. Around the central part, which they called the nest, they stacked a stack of firewood in layers, first the thickest, and towards the perimeter getting thinner. A second, sometimes a third, was invested in the first fund. The cooking itself took three weeks, depending on the dryness of the firewood, the method of stacking, the weather conditions and the care of the charcoal burner. In Gozd Martuljek, this noble craft is being revived as part of the Charcoal Days in Kopišče, where you can see this interesting way of wood processing live. The charcoal burners cover the piles of firewood and then charcoal is cooked in the piles for 10 to 14 days. The best is the one made of hazel.
