Bảo vệ cây cổ thụ khi xây dựng

Chào các bạn,

Đây là một cây cổ thụ được bảo tồn tại một công trường tại Lisbon, thủ đô Bồ Đào Nha. Ở công trường này, các toà nhà cũ (trong khu phố cổ trung tâm) đã được đập đi, hoặc giữ lại một phần và chuẩn bị xây các toà nhà mới. Cây cổ thụ còn lại được bảo vệ một cách đặc biệt bằng khung sắt và lưới, cho đến khi hoàn thành toà nhà mới mà không bị chặt đi. (Hình do mình chụp, click vào hình để nhìn rõ hơn)
