Are you addressing my comment about one side of my property being a dead hedge fence?
One side of my 40 acres is a dead hedge fence. It is at least 5 feet across if not more in places.
As for my property since it is 40 acres the long pile is a long way from my house or my neighbor's house.
Since I am on top of a mountain and there is an abandoned airstrip between my house and the pile I feel we have enough safeguards in place so we do not need to worry about the fire from that pile.
Though that is a good warning for others that might be considering an easy/free windbreak hedging.

Would you be willing to share your recipe, method & equipment for making these noodles for us gluten intolerant folk? Thanks!
