JACKSON, N.J. (AP) — A theme park plans to cut down more than 18,000 trees for the construction of what it says will be the largest solar farm in New Jersey... Six Flags spokeswoman Kristin Siebeneicher tells the Asbury Park Press (http://on.app.com/1HUsoaV ) the park and KDC Solar have pledged to replant 25,000 trees over a period of seven years.

Hmm, with all this power and Six Flags becoming really good partners with Premier Rides, now would be the perfect time to bring back Batman and Robin: The Chiller.

I guess it's okay then.

Environmentalists aren't happy.

In addition, a spokesman for the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection says the agency doesn't support the project...

Six Flags has pledged to replant 25,000 trees over seven years, but Jeff Tittel, the [Sierra] club's director, says it will take 30 to 40 years before they grow into a mature forest.

Tittel says the solar farm site, off Reed Road, is home to nesting bald eagles and other endangered species. It also provides a critical buffer between the safari park and two important headwater streams for Barnegat Bay, he said.
