I would only burn about a 20' pile one at a time. As a firefighter who has fought brush fires and as a homeowner who has started them, believe me they are no picnic

Burning brush piles go on often around here and believe me there cannot be enough care taken to make sure that nothing goes wrong.

Except for the running of the chain saws this is the most stressful part of the job.

Be careful but send pictures.

By the way where is Birch Run

I was moderately freaked out by my dirt-guy's tree burning practice. First of all, I never dreamed that green, freshly downed trees would burn. Stupid city boy. Once it's lit, green timber burns fairly slow but it requires alot of attention with the dozer and track hoe as they constantly adjust and compact the mass to continue a thorough burn. As promised, the only thing left is root balls. As we cut into the virgin block of timber to remove trees (many) to create the road to get to the pondsite, there were 2 smaller burn piles of trees created on the way that got torched right under the remaining forest canopy. That's the fires that freaked me. He reassured me that they haven't lost one yet. A gallon or two of diesel, a match, and maybe an old tire (sshhhh).

Up by me, They've been digging up apple orchards and using gas powered fans to stoke the fires.

We have the pile consolidated. Some of the material was pretty wet. (It's been sitting since last fall.) I plan to give it a couple weeks to dry out. I contacted the state forestry folks about a permit, and they suggested I hire them to burn the pile. The fee is very reasonable, and they will stand by with their equipment. I want to set it up for a Friday, so I can camp out with my kids for the weekend and keep an eye on it.

Make it hardwoods instead of pines, and that pile looks REAL familiar to me. \:\)
