Vin Nardizzi connects these themes to the dependence, and surprising ecological impact, of London's commercial theatre industry on England's woodlands, the primary resource required to build all structures in early modern England. Wooden Os situates the theatre within an environmental history that witnessed a perceived scarcity of wood and timber that drove up prices, as well as statute law prohibiting the devastation of English woodlands and urgent calls for the remedying of a resource shortage that was feared would result in eco-political collapse.
By considering works including Friar Bacon and Friar Bungay, the revised Spanish Tragedy, and The Tempest, Nardizzi demonstrates how the "trees" within them were used in imaginative ways to mediate England's resource crisis.

In plotting the composite The Spanish Tragedy's considerations of trees, social ambition, theatricality, and idolatry along the coordinates of material resources and political stability, Nardizzi persuasively frames the play as a meditation on England's timber shortage and its "grim eco-political consequences" Exploring Hieronimo's botanical, familial, and religious husbandry as "a green version of Renaissance self-fashioning," Nardizzi cross-hatches a compelling reading of the play with ecologically-encoded matters of social advancement, iconoclasm, and realpolitik An unknown error has occurred.
