4 Million RMB Spent On Protecting Tree During City Rebuild

4 Million RMB Spent On Protecting Tree During City Rebuild
A 323-year-old tree in Xiangyang Old City, Hubei is being protected to the tune of 4 million RMB whilst a large-scale rebuilding project goes on around it. The plant, commonly known as Manchurian catalpa, had 91 protective piles driven 20m into the ground and concrete poured around it, with extra vegetation planted to prevent water and soil loss. Fancheng District Committee secretary Deng Zhuohai said the gesture demonstrated the local authorities’ philosophy for protecting the city’s ecology. Some netizens felt the sum was too hefty, whilst one said increased tourism revenues would more than make up for it.
