Wood can have several different meanings and the same meaning can have different meanings depending where in the world you come from. A wood no matter where you are it is my understanding that although thick enough to also be called a thicket the canopy is not so closed in that you cannot see the sky. In Australia we call our woods “the bush”. It is a fairly untidy place and apart from wood there are often other delights to be found such as in two of the photos above.
Quite a different feel to walking through the wood we found in Crawley in the UK which was very different to walking through the wood in Vanuatu.
and very different again to the woods found in Vietnam and Cambodia.
But then we could be talking about a different type of wood altogether. Perhaps timber to build a house or even wood for the fireplace.
