Example text

The defence of patriotic values now lay with the members of the landed aristocracy – ‘the great oaks which shade the country’ in Edmund Burke’s words – not the monarch. Hitherto, private lands had been managed more efficiently than Royal Forests, unhindered by the limitations of Forest Laws. Furthermore, the economic conditions were particularly favourable to tree-planting between 1670 and 1760, so that it was not too difficult for landowners to appear patriotic. Planting trees in vast numbers was the result of the political stability that permitted long-term investments, and because trees take a long time to grow, this in turn generated a wish to protect the growing trees from profligate inheritors.

William the Conqueror’s son Richard was gored to death by a stag during a hunt. His other son, Rufus, was shot by an arrow in the New Forest in 1100, and his death was interpreted in popular folklore as a punishment for reneging on his promise to restore the common rights over vert and venison in the Royal Forests outside the royal demesne. The Conqueror’s grandson, Henry, died when he became caught up in the branch of a tree. But beyond strict reality, the greenwood myth served as an imaginary escape for the victims of feudal oppression.

But again, it was mostly in the 18th century that the landowners’ efforts to protect and make the country prosper, by planting trees, were endorsed and rewarded. From 1758 to 1835, the Royal Society for the Encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce awarded prizes to landowners who had planted great amounts of acorns and trees. Among the trees planted other than oak were alder, plane, elm and Lombardy poplar [James 1981: 168]. The efforts were beginning to bear fruit at the beginning of the 19th century: it is estimated that by 1835, well over 50 million trees had been planted.
