The other night I was watching The Hobbit: the Desolation of Smaug (of course I was), specifically the scene in Mirkwood where Bilbo climbs the tree to gain his bearings. I was noticing the beauty of the shot and how vast Mirkwood is. I also realized that I expected the leaves on the trees to be dark green, maybe even greenish to purplish, but that’s beside the point.
At that point I realized that most of the fantasy novels I have read have had one vastly huge and impenetrable forest.
This is just a start to what I’m sure could be a formidable list. Any other fantastic forests worthy of note?
It’s a holdover from folk and fairy tales, I expect.
You could add The Edge Chronicles to this
