"Lifespan of wind farms"

Shouldn't the title be:

Lifespan of wind turbines

Trees die; the forest doesn't.

I agree that longevity will improve with experience. Alternative if costs decline sufficiently, one can just plan on replacement every ten to fifteen years. Bolting a new turbine to an established base can probably be done in a day.
