This decision was made by the Berlin- Brandenburg Higher Administrative Court on Thursday evening. The action by the environmental association Green League is therefore dismissed. Berlin-Brandenburg court has successfully given Tesla Giga Berlin the green light needed to continue the removal of the planted pine trees.
According to tagesspiegel, the court based its decision, among other things, on the fact that the piece of forest that Tesla wants to clear was previously planted for economic purpose and pose no serious threat to the environment, as it would if it were to be a natural forest.
This gives Tesla the green light to continue cutting down trees on part of the site before the growing season begins – initially around 90 hectares. This order can not be contested. The Green League was disappointed. Attorney Dirk Teßmer said: “We were optimistic that it would be different.”
