The ancient Chestnut Tree at River Street in Brechin was the 'friend' of many residents. Through the history of social change and flooding it has witnessed a community's life and endurance and acted as 'voyeur'. Sadly, now chopped down to make way for the flood prevention scheme which, ironically, will benefit residents in the future.
