Ancient chestnut tree

Detail of the old, remarkable chestnut tree in my hometown. Planted around 1820, it is nearing 200 years of age.

Alas, there’s some bad news about it, just two days ago the local newspaper ran an article saying that it may last maybe 5 to 15 years more, but things don’t look too good for this living monument.
