The love of Trees

We love trees and ancient woodland. At Pritchard & Company we are proud of our heritage and the beautiful natural landscape we are lucky enough to be surrounded by. Our area, which spans South Warwickshire, South Worcestershire and the North Cotswolds, is home to some wonderful stretches of woodland and pockets of ancient woodland. Britain’s ancient woodlands are one of our richest habitats and are defined as any wooded area that has existed since 1600 (1750 in Scotland). There is so much joy that comes from being surrounded by trees. Woods and trees are essential for people, wildlife and for life.
