SB,
In the case of The Golden Lion, I get the impression that the trees were there before the building was reconstructed and if they weren't they could have been prevented.

The Tower of London was of course a complete balls up. William the Conqueror wasn't the brightest jewel with a crown and simply got the scale wrong on his map of Greater London. Once building had begun it was realised that the constant drone of flying machines would become a terrible discomfort to occupiers of the building until the path of the airport runways could be extended in a direction away from the Tower.
At 90ft tall it was not considered to be a danger to overhead traffic so building continued to completion.
Henry the 8th, or so it is said, imposed a night time ban of flying as his guests at the tower were having great difficulty dropping off. This played havoc with eastbound travel until the arrival of a concept known as "Breaking the Rules" which allowed all but the very noisiest of medieval aircraft to leave or depart after the hours of feasting. According to the theory of the expanding universe the tower and the airport are now as far apart as one would expect.
