But it wasn’t because of Amsterdam city council.
The author of the world-famous Anne Frank Diary could see the 150-year-old horse chestnut from her bedroom window in Amsterdam, where she hid from the Nazis for two years.
After being betrayed, Anne later died in a concentration camp.
“A spokesman for the Anne Frank foundation said it had not yet been decided what to do with the wood, but that it would not be used for commercial purposes”, says the story, adding:
“The trunk will remain in the ground for the time being.
“A number of chestnuts and other parts of the tree have already been offered for sale on online auctions such as Ebay.”
