Boxed trees?

I was at the hospital today when I noticed these trees. .....they are surrounded by wire boxes.  Does anyone know why /what effect this will create?

    I imagine something like this

    though why you would want to is anybody’s guess.
    And I think the NHS would have better things to spend its money on.
    Apophthegm -  a big word for a small thought.
    If you live in Derbyshire, as I do.

    A neighbour of mine once cut down eight gorgeous mature cherry trees in their front garden and put in these boxed uglinesses instead and concreted the ground. I can't imagine what they were thinking. I still shudder whenever I walk past the house in the old neighbourhood. I'm glad I don't live next to it any more.

    I don't understand this at all! They don't look good in any way!
