Local Tree History - The Forest of Arden
"A fool! A fool! I met a fool in the forest." (All the world’s a stage, As You Like It. William Shakespeare)
The beautiful and magical setting for the William Shakespeare play 'As You Like It'; much of the forest was cleared by the 1600s, though this gives you an idea of what a dense, vast space that the forest originally covered to be mentioned in one of the bard`s plays.
Starting northwest in the county of Warwick, down to Stratford in the south and Tamworth in the north; including the areas which are now Birmingham and Coventry. The forest is bound by Roman roads, most likely due to the difficulty of building any way through it.
A place of historical interest is Coughton Cross - located at the south-west corner of the forest. In the past travellers passing through would pray here to ensure their safe journey out of the forest.
The dominant species of tree in the Arden is the oak, in some villages 90% of the large trees are oaks. This is because the subsoil is heavy deep clay – conditions where the Oak flourishes. The largest English Oak still standing is in Stoneleigh Abbey. Measuring 9.2m around its circumference, it is thought to be around 1,000 years old.
Robert Catesby - leader of the Gunpowder Plot (1605) was a native of Lapworth, a village in Arden where many families had resisted the Reformation and held Catholic sympathies.
Some kind words from clients in the Stratford Upon Avon Region
Just a note to say how impressed I was with your team and the work they carried out on my tree report.
Justin Hawkings, Cotswolds
The property we wanted to purchase had dozens of trees in the grounds. Your tree surveys for mortgages in Northampton meant we could have our mortgage approved in no time! Delighted!.
