8,000 yuan tree house to be axed

A house built in a camphor tree in the Pudong district of Shanghai has been ordered to be removed by planning authorities. The house, with an area of 14 square meters was completely built by its owner at a cost of 8,000 yuan ($1,270) and took two years to finish since starting in 2004. Its owner, Mr Huang said he was inspired by the tree houses in India. However, it has been regarded as unauthorized construction by officials and will be removed. [Photo/CFP]
