Produces Coal.

The Charcoal burner's hut is one of two production buildings that produce Coal, the other being the Coal mine. The Charcoal burner's hut is unlocked much earlier than the Coal mine, however, so this will be the main source of Coal during the early stages of a game. When the Noblemen level is reached, two Charcoal burner's huts can be replaced by one Coal mine. Coal mines are generally the preferred option in the later stages of a game, because they take a lot less space.

The Charcoal burner's hut requires 120 Trees within its Influence area to achieve 100% productivity. If there are less than 120 Trees in its working area, the Charcoal burner's hut will be less effective, with the effectiveness decreasing linearly with the number of trees. The Charcoal burner's hut has a large Influence area, however, so it is possible to maintain 100% productivity even when its Influence area overlaps with other buildings, as long as it still has 120 trees in its working area.

If the working area of the Charcoal burner's hut crosses the circle of a Lumberjack's hut, Charcoal burner's hut or Forest glassworks, productivity loss may occur. The second building that was built receives no productivity benefits from the overlapping squares while the first building maintains full productivity benefits from those squares.
