let it dry out for a couple of months and a transit load will only take a day to burn

if you can tip it somewhere dry you could sell it to a biomass firm. i've only burnt it by accident and th ehuge pile didn;t really burn that well the top layer flashed over then it just smouldered in very slowly. you'd probably be best to rake it out on a hot da to let it dry well then use a bit of diesel to get it going.

If your farmer has a telehandler with a big bucket, I would put him in touch with one of the firms that buy chip and leave him to it.
