When we touch this domain, we are filled with the cosmic force of life itself.
We sink our roots deep into the black soil and draw power and being up into ourselves.
We know the energy of the numen and are saturated with power and being. We feel grounded, centered, in touch with the ancient and eternal rhythms of life.
Power and passion well up like an artesian spring and creativity dances in celebration of life. ~ poetry by David N. Elkins

. A forest, also referred to as a wood or the woods, is an area with a high density of trees. . . A typical forest is composed of the overstory (canopy or upper tree layer) and the understory. The understory is further subdivided into the shrub layer, herb layer, and also the moss layer and soil microbes. In some complex forests, there is also a well-defined lower tree layer . . Forests can be found in all regions capable of sustaining tree growth . . The latitudes 10° north and south of the Equator are mostly covered in tropical rainforest, and the latitudes between 53°N and 67°N have boreal forest. As a general rule, forests dominated by angiosperms (broadleaf forests) are more species-rich than those dominated by gymnosperms (conifer, montane, or needleleaf forests), although exceptions exist.
Forests sometimes contain many tree species only within a small area (as in tropical rain and temperate deciduous forests), or relatively few species over large areas (e.g., taiga and arid montane coniferous forests).
Among the major forested biomes are:
rain forest (tropical and temperate)
temperate hardwood forest
tropical dry forest . . .
28 forest categories are used to enable the translation of forest types from national and regional classification systems to a harmonised global one . . Read more about it on Wikipedia - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Forest
