From craventhirty.com:
"Construction is underway and retail and residential construction will begin during the fall of 2015."

...if nothing is happening it's probably because it's not the fall of 2015 yet.

Clear-cut land may be different, but I was just estimating from our yard. It is constantly sprouting pine seedlings which we pull up.

The housing developers who clear-cut cause more problems than Apple. Apple seems to have a responsible management policy.

Yeah... As each year passes the dates change, but the development is still corn fields. They originally spoke of breaking ground when Bev Purdue was still the governor.

And what does that have to with Apple, or anything else that was discussed on this thread?

Go back to the beginning and reread. You'll see a part where I mentioned that talk is cheap and I used Craven30 as an example. It was yourself and others that decided to defend Craven30. Will Craven30 ever be built? Perhaps. I don't know. Will Apple plant Long Leaf Pine seedlings when they're done? I don't know. Only time will tell and that's the only point I was trying to make. I don't trust either Weyerhaeuser or Apple to keep their word.

It's a long way and millions of suitable trees between Apple's headquarters in Cupertino CA to Eastern NC. Why did they have to go so far just to get these particular Long Leaf Pines? Perhaps because they're easy pickings and unprotected?

Um, I didn't defend Craven 30. I never even mentioned it. And I really fail to see the connection between a real estate development in New Bern, and what Apple is planning.

Plus, the land Apple has bought doesn't have long leaf pines, it has hardwoods and loblollies.

Do you trust the Conservation Fund and the Nature Conservancy?

Loblollys tend to grow where Long Leafs once were. They're both SYP to the lumber industry. SYP is grouped in with the SPF lumbers.
