Not really. Ashes can be spread on a garden in small amounts (25-50 pounds per 1000 sq. ft.) but it will be difficult to measure the amount of ash the brush pile might generate. Too much ash will keep plants from growing. I'd vote for either composting the brush or hauling it off rather than burning it.
