how does pine and willow charcoal differ from plain old random tree charcoal when used in pyrotechnics?
i am starting up an online store, and am already starting to sell some of my pyrotechnic supplies, such as manganese dioxide and charcoal, but i just realised, on ebay (my online store is not an ebay store), people are only ever selling pine charcoal or willow charcoal!
which doesnt make much sense since is a super fine powder and is made up of carbon.
i need to know what makes these so much different from regular random tree charcoal that comes from just anywhere, and, is the charcoal i have now, which is of unknown origin, but mostly of from pine-like trees in the tropics, the same?
i need to know if it makes any difference since i dont want angry customers demanding refunds because it isnt as good as other charcoal!
