On Thursday 26 and Friday 27 August the fallen chestnut tree will be sawn into pieces and removed. The Anne Frank House is not the owner of the tree, and therefore has no say in what will be done with the wood. The Support Anne Frank Tree foundation will concern itself with this. It is not yet known what will come in the place of the Anne Frank tree. The tree stood in a private garden, and it is up to the owner to decide what to put in its place.
Aug. 23, 2010 — On 23 August around 13.30 hours the chestnut tree that Anne Frank wrote about in her diary fell down, together with its iron supporting construction. The tree broke off completely at a height of approximately one meter above the ground. Fortunately nobody was injured.
