Tree Wardens

Ed Boyd of Charlton Lane has stepped forward to take over the role and learn / promote lots about our trees of note.


Past Wardens have included: 


Quarry Wood, Kent WildlifeTrust


Tranquil ancient mixed woodland with the Ewell stream and watercress ponds. Much of the reserve is Sweet Chestnut coppice. The north side of the reserve has mature oak and beech and between here and the old ragstone quarry - ash and sycamore can be found in the long damp valley.

There is a small area of conifers in the centre of the reserve in what was once a hop garden. The sides of the stream at the bottom of the valley are covered in plants such as golden saxifrage, cuckooflower, red campion and a large colony of ramsons. The valley slopes are covered with dog's mercury, early-purple orchid, twayblade and the occasional common spotted-orchid.
