A German court rejected a bid by environmentalists to halt Tesla from clearing a forest at the site of its upcoming Berlin Gigafactory over concerns about hibernating snakes, paving the way for construction to resume following a Tuesday halt.
The environmentalists had attempted to get the court to stop the cutting of the trees, arguing that the felling of pines could endanger the sleeping serpents.
The court, however, rejected the appeal, saying that Tesla had taken sufficient measures to protect the snakes by agreeing to requirements that force them to capture and resettle them in a new habitat.
Tesla is not permitted to begin building its factory until it receives conditional approval by local authorities, who are required to get feedback from the local community and environmental groups.
The snakes were the latest environmental obstacle Tesla has faced while building the German factory where it hopes to start producing electric cars by July 2021.
The Silicon Valley automaker was also forced to temporarily stop cutting down trees in February following criticism from environmental advocates who feared the project could pollute the area’s drinking water.
Tesla has pledged to address the environmental concerns by planting trees on a lot three times the size of its factory plot and reducing its water consumption by more than half.
