But that's okay because if you do it when it's low overcast nobody will notice right? Closest pile was 76 meters from my house.

I sure hope you document all of it and file a report :swear: let us know what happens

From the way the smoke is going straight up from those piles, it was a good venting day.

Like we didn’t have to choke on enough smoke all summer!
How about chipping that wood instead into mulch instead of pollution!
Better yet, have the culprits pay a carbon tax on that burning!,,

Slash burning is essential to helping prevent fires during the summer. Chipping is not economical especially if the slash has no marketable value. Burning also gets rid of pine beetle and puts nutrients back into the soil. It is much more effective than "praying for rain" like all the idiots on Facebook do all summer. If the smoke bothers you, perhaps quit smoking or move to the north pole. This is how forests work, deal with it.
Keep calm and wear your tinfoil hat.
