Mars Hill 2006 (under construction)

All the roads and pads installed; most turbine bases present. The roads measure nearly 100 feet wide, and the cleared areas likely average 4-5 acres per turbine. As much as 1-square mile of forest interior was lost due to the "edge effects" caused by the extensive fragmentation of the Mars Hill forest by this project's infrastructure.
