@Rev

This project reminds me of the fight that is also going on here in my area.

The treehuggers want to have a high-speed railway from San Jose to LA to prevent emissions. But they have to tear down trees to build the railway and they don't want that.

Apple ripped out an entire forest in order to land its 'space graft, er craft.' And now the company says it will replant trees to make up for that. Hmm...

The spaceship campus is not the first of its kind. There's a facility near Washington DC that is circular if you round off the 5 points. You know the place.

Here's a Drone's Eye view of progress of the Apple 2 Campus as of abt 3 months ago.

HP had a huge facility on this lot before Apple leveled it and started over.

There is a video on YouTube -- haven't got the link handy -- with Steve Jobs presenting this to the Cupertino city council. It covers some interesting facts about land use before and after. Note especially the percentage of asphalt surfaced parking lot and green space before and after. I think the tree huggers win on this one.

I've also seen video of the big trees being excavated and moved, not just torn down. Quite interesting.
