Forests have always been a mainstay of stories and tales from a very young age. Forests have an inescapable mystery and sense of wonder about them. From enchanted forests to scary forests, the forest lends itself to many a literary device. Unfortunately, the time of the forest is quickly disappearing. Forest areas are being cut down and destroyed at a truly terrifying rate, and not only are we losing the life giving trees, but all the wildlife that dwell in their leafy terrain. Forests have always had their place in fantasy, but we are running the very real risk of confining their presence to fantasy alone.
