Fountain Forestry bought the Warren in 1957; the name comes from Fountain House, the prestigious post-war building in the City of London with a fountain in the entrance hall. These were the offices of Mathew Wrightson Limited a Lloyds insurance company who could offer better fire insurance rates for young plantations than those being offers by other insurance companies. The Directors and some of the underwriting names at the time invested in forestry as they could offset the cost against their other income and reduce the high taxes they were paying post war. These tax incentives were introduced by the Labour government after 1945 to help replant thousands of acres of private forests following the removal of all the timber for the war effort.
