Need to burn 4 or 5 wood piles before winter is over but it stays too wet

This is the leftovers from clear cutting the pines outside the yard. Could I just soak the piles in diesel and burn them when the area is not too wet but wet enough to keep from spreading? Each pile is about the size of three cars. I need to get it done so I can plant some new trees before winter is over.

Offer it for free, explain that it needs to season. I suspect it will be gone shortly

It's pine and sweet gum.

Cover it with a tarp. Do one pile a time if needed. A little diesel is O.K. , but don’t overuse.


Or rent a chipper.

Around here someone would pick it up. Free heat for their shop or house.

Not after the Pine unpleasantness of 1924. Never forget.

You should at least put the wood on Craigslist and see.

Tarp and then burn will work.

I like the chipper/shredder idea. Mulch it up and either use it, or give it away free. Much better for the environments than throwing diesel on it and burning it.
