Woods and forests, on Speed's map of Hampshire, are shown by
drawings of trees. They appear to be grouped meaningfully,
either in parks, or in groups for a wood or forest, which might
be labelled, eg:- Beare Forest, Limwood. There
are no tree symbols in the north of the county, except in parks.
There are some forests without any trees, but labelled, eg:- Buckholt Forrest, West Forrest.
there are two styles of tree symbol.
In the New Forest there is a splendid group of deer leaping through trees and hills, chased by a hound.
