Tesla gets approval to remove more of the adjacent tree farm at Giga Berlin

Giga Berlin Nov 29 2020

Tesla has received approval from the government in Germany to clear more trees from the adjacent tree farm at Giga Berlin.

The approval allows Tesla to clear approximately 83 hectares (205 acres) in order to build storage areas and pipe systems for the new Gigafactory.

There will likely be no protests over the removal of these trees. When the automaker first started site preparations earlier this year, their work was put on hold after environmental groups objected to the large area of trees being removed. The work stoppage was short lived, as a German court rejected the application in a matter of days.

As news of the approval became public, works crews have continued their rapid pace of construction at the site. The latest drone flyover shows off the massive scale of the Gigafactory, with a number of very large buildings nearing completion.
