My forest has a vortex. Curiously this vortex steals forks from my house-just forks. It tends to deposit extra spoons and knives. A vortex may give off energy or consume energy. It has strange effects on the relative energy of surrounding organisms. Note the fork on the dryad's scarf.

Note that while the forest grows thick cutting it back and clearing the land for gardens will anger the forest so that it releases strong toxins into the soil and nothing humans plant will grow within the territory claimed by an enchanted forest.
