Identification: Strange metal contraption.

Hello, I am looking for information about this late1850's photo of a British Boy's School. What is that strange metal contraption on the stump? Any guesses most appreciated.

Thanks, Chris.

Damage from what? Lightning?

This might not be helpful but I have seen similar metal structures around saplings and young trees in public parks to protect them from damage
