A 100-year-old tree, which grew in the northwest corner of Bayon temple, was struck by lightning 10 years ago and was in a fragile condition. Forestry management experts of APSARA Authority began installing the steel scaffolding to cut the upper branches to avoid endanger to visitors and treat it since 8 April 2017.
Mr. Yin Sovat, Deputy Director of Department of Forestry Management Cultural landscapes and Environment, confirmed that his working group observed that old tree and saw its internal decay as well as some dead branches that might break down and cause the danger to visitors. He added that due to that tree is over 40 meters long, so his team needs to take time to set up scaffolding and plans to start cutting dead branches by the end of April.
