There are three mulberry trees in Forty Hall estate. One at the front on the west lawn of the Hall is about 100-120 years old.,There is another in the walled garden about 25 years old, planted to replace an 18th century mulberry blown down in the 1987 hurricane. Another is planted against a wall of the garden. In 2014 the "Silken Cells" exhibition, held at the estate, included silk tableware decorated with micropatterns of leaf structures collected from the mulberries in the grounds of Forty Hall. The park also includes a massive cedar tree, one of the "Great Trees of London", planted between 1662-70. It is the second oldest in the country and is a local landmark. The nearby Forty Hall Farm Orchard also includes a mulberry, planted by a local school in 2012.
