Registered as a natural monument since 1979 with the Provincia Autonoma of Bolzano Department of Nature, Landscape and Spatial Development.
The reason for protection is the great age of the tree and its aesthetic peculiarity.
The chestnut is located directly at the Happichlhof (Happichl Inn) in Rabland/Rablà in Geroldstraße/Via Gerold and can be visited during a hike along the Rablander Waalweg/sentiero della roggia di Rablà (irrigation channel).
According to the owner, the roots reach under the adjacent barn of the Happichlhof (distance 10 m).
As a result of its free standing, it was able to develop unconfined.
The trunk divides into two main branches at a height of 6 m.
