I have taken down a load of conifer type trees and need to burn it all as not practical to remove, can anyone recommend an accelerant which I could use that is not too lethal to get the fire going- I have read that creosote is good and not too volatile? Thanks

Burning green wood
Do not burn newly cut pine inside. - Do it outside and stack it up (away from a building) to provide a good draft. Then use some kindling at the bottom and apply some gas or something less flammable. You don't need too much to get it started, but must have some patience until it starts.
Light it and then get the marshmallows and wieners ready for when you have some good coals. If you and have a spare pig, dig a hole, put in some rocks, the wood, get the fire burned down, then the pig and cover for a day.
If you have an acre of pine cleared, you may need a different schedule.
