I know a reader recently posted a question about wood ash, but I have a whole lot of coal ash, and am wondering if there are any good ideas for it? Thanks!

There is an article on the West Virginia University site about coal ash. It speaks about using it for apple trees. I would suggest contacting the Professor of that article about any safe uses for your coal ash. The article speaks of industrial coal ash so it may contain different properties from the home use coal ash. There are some toxic properties to the industrial ash. You can contact the professor at:
