a caution designing are catching outfits are constructed not to plaster but to make something. welcome to us in culture april 29th tain the world watched incredulous as not saddam cathedral in paris burned the city's mediæval masterpiece and the price napoleon was crowned it was hard to believe it could be on fire. 2 years on restoration work is underway but efforts to save one of europe's cultural treasures has involved sacrificing some of its natural ones. workers from the national forests office have cut down $1000.00 oak trees there were around 200 years old almost as old as the not to dam tower itself which collapsed in the fire and will be rebuilt with these very tree. they get a 2nd life and no $2.01 of the beams will last for 20300 years so these trees have

a very noble purpose we're very touched by the support of the book with him with her it's a monumental task scaffolding has been erected so that the spire and roof can be rebuilt and further damage prevented. and then there are the windows in the name of which have been removed germany has offered to finance the restoration of 8 windows. to the poor some windows will be sent to germany for restoration and the other part of the money raised in germany will secure the restoration of other windows. so franco german cooperation is also taking shape president among call had set an ambitious timetable for the whole project it's to be completed by 2024 by the time of the un picking the trees mark an important intermediate step towards the school

their failing is the symbolic start of the reconstruction of note. and i'm joined now by my colleague adrian kennedy welcome idea now these trees are hundreds of years old being fails to rebuild not too dumb not everyone is happy about this now they know 40000 conservationists signed a petition trying to stop the chopping down of these oaks for the restoration but the forestry department says that the trees involved only represent 0 point one percent of an annual harvest that is necessary anyway to provide room for younger trees they say sourcing the wood in france gives them total control over the process the critics though counter that this ward and lead construction is outs modood that it's a proven fire risk that it's a toxic chris in case of fire and other reconstructions have been done with
11:34 pm
concrete they really but the decision on how not to dom is to be rebuilt has long been made right that's why it all went very quickly and i think we should go back and remember the shock of the fire which came at time when france was reeling after a series of terror attacks there was an order collective guard from. when the iconic spire collapsed. president macron was very quick to make the restoration a priority on the 1st anniversary he played that not down would be restored within 5 years by 2024 there was a period. when more exciting innovative ideas were. considered but it was very quickly decided to restore the cathedral faithfully and quite conservative why around a 1000000000 euros was raised for the reconstruction much of it came from super
11:35 pm
rich donors and some people believe that they had an influence on this conservative decision and approach high c i don't remember the pledge is flooding in. but is the target date for completion realistic well the rector if not to dam himself says 15 to 20 years most of the work that's been done so far has been securing the science it's been stopping for the crap says it's being with taking out toxic lead and other substances far from the cutting down of the oaks the physical reconstruction is not really started so critics still feel there is time to sway public opinion and take a different course of action right that's good in the past months i do believe there have been some events inside the cathedral that's right in december there was a very moving concert it was the 1st event. of the since the fire
