And how about going green means we all know that plants make seeds and people also are capable of replenshing the tree supply.

There's already too much destruction of habitat for wildlife in that area. You can go green all you want but if you are destroying trees to accomplish it, you are defeating the purpose. What would happen if every tree on the planet was destroyed but every thing built in their place was "green"? The whole world would die out quickly.
Well I agree with you there, HOWEVER, one of their reasons for building there is to do the Native American Museum - which relates to that specific section of land they are developing. And I think they are planning on keeping a significant number of acres intact. If you look at the Land Plan Draft on the Kanawha website, it certainly looks like over half the land remains completely intact.
