Many comments were heard tending to highlight the threat that tree cover can have on historical buildings. But it must be remembered, however, the forest cover is a heritage, of which the Ta Promh temple is an illustrious example.
This is completely in line with the 1972 Convention on the protection of world cultural and natural heritage.
It is recommended that treatment of the forest cover in Angkor be a matter of routine. Overall management is under the purview of the APSARA National Authority’s Forestry, Cultural Landscape and Environmental Management Department.
