how do burning put nutrient back to the soil

    That appears to be a question with opposing viewpoints–for burning/against burning.

    Though there is a body of thought that indicates that the great forests of both north and south america were the products of terraforming by the Indians, through the use of fire. Which indicates that the burn process is a way of enriching the carbon content of the soil with the charcoal that results. One result of such a process is a soil called terra preta de indio, which has opened up an area of study that is absolutely astounding in its potentialities. A grand read for the details of that is the book 1491 (America before columbus).
