I wonder if they will be harvested, or just pushed up and hauled off/burned. A good tree harvester could have that property cleaned out of good trees in a matter of days.

It's official now, with Gov Haley chiming on on the new Michelin Distribution Center. Located at Hwy's 101 and 417. $270M dollar investment with 350 new jobs. Construction is expected to begin later this year, and the first phase of the center is expected to open in late 2017.

Full construction should be complete in early 2019, the company says. The Spartanburg County Council recently provided final approval of a “fee in lieu of taxes” agreement, something Michelin labeled "a final key step" enabling the project to move forward.

I'm sure we will see more development follow Michelin to the Hwy 101 corridor. Lots of unused land. But also sad to see the fields and trees go away.

Michelin desperately needs this. We produce tires with no where to go so we put them in trailors. Then, once the demand is there for that particular tire, it's an ordeal to access the tires needed since there are so many trailors sprawled out at the Laurens county facility.

They are going gangbusters clearing land for the new distribution center. Cut down hundreds of trees.

Last night they brought in a huge, over-sized back hoe.
