Stor-Sarvlaks is an old manor house located on the south coast of Finland, about 80 kilometres east of Helsinki. The history of the estate covers 600 years in the possession of three noble families: Creutz, von Morian and von Born. The main building, a handsome baroque mansion, was completed in 1683, while the surrounding park and gardens were laid out during the 19th century. In the 1930’s, a major part of the garden was reshaped following the German formal garden style. The writers report the findings of their inventories in the park and garden of Stor-Sarvlaks in 2011.
Over the past fifty years, the park and gardens have received relatively little maintenance. The main features of the formal front and back gardens remain, as do the long birch avenues towards the roadways north and east of the manor grounds. Even the main items of the 19th century landscape park still persist, though seriously threatened by overgrowth and collapse. A survey of vascular plant species in the maintained park area (approx. four hectares) revealed 167 taxa, of which 25 were trees, 30 shrubs and 112 herbs and grasses. The most noteworthy specimens were the rare silver maples, the imposing larches and other old trees, as well as the amazingly species-rich hedgerows in and around the front garden. The treatise concludes by discussing the infertility of early
silver maple plantations in Finland.
