Woodland

"... in England the New Forest with its ancient and gigantic oaks and beeches, a forest steeped in history. Here I used to go collecting specimens on horseback, a splendid way of moving and observing. The New Forest is not really the best name for it, as it is very old; a much better name would be "wildwoods". The woods are remnants of primeval forests that covered England when the glaciers receded some 10,000 years ago, and which in those days were the haunt of large mammals such as wolves and wild boars."
