The chestnut tree has been condemned, as its trunk is so diseased it could topple over. But before the tree is cut down this Wednesday, one entrepreneur was able to snatch a relic and attempt to make a profit on it. Charles Kuijpers, who lives next door to the tree’s garden, has put one chestnut from the tree up for sale on eBay.
Bids at the time of writing were at $700. How much would you pay?
