Anne Frank's chestnut tree is to be cut down next week - it had been granted a reprieve until January but it has been decided that it has to go a lot sooner.
It has now become so diseased that it is likely to topple over damaging the surrounding houses.
The tree was lovingly described by Anne Frank in the diary that she kept whilst hiding from the Nazi German occupation in World War II.
Pretty sad isn't it?
