Where Is the Best Place to Put a Compost Pile

Where is the best place to put a compost pile--in sun or under trees? I have wooded land next to me. I wanted to put my pile in there so it was out of sight. Will it get hot enough in shade?

You can get a pile to heat up in the shade. You can do this by making sure it has the right balance of browns, greens, water and air. This article will help:
