Estimated number of oak trees at least 200 years old needed to restore the spire of Notre-Dame de Paris: 1,300

Video by Le Parisian showing the felling of just a few of the trees that will be cut later this year, dried for 18 months, and then made into beams for the church's reconstruction in 2024:
