British artists Ackroyd and Harvey created a series of living artworks to mark the main entrances of the Park. Ten specimen trees, chosen to reflect the biodiversity of the Park, each support a large, bespoke metal ring within their crown.
The rings, engineered from bronze or stainless steel, are six metres in diameter and individually engraved on the interior face with text capturing an archive of history from each location.

See below for details of each tree and its inscription. Note that the inscriptions on the rings are split into different phrases by use of a different font - for clarity, I have separated the phrases using a full-stop ".". This full-stop is not part of the ring text.
All of the text on the rings is in upper-case.
Finally, there are a few words that seem to be mis-spelled in the text ("Knights Temlar" is one such example). The text below is taken from the images on the artists' web site and is reproduced as shown there, including these apparent mis-spellings. I have not been able to verify the actual ring inscription text.
