Forest

Reading: RIN, hayashi

Strokes: 8

Etymology: Like the previous character, woods, this is an ideograph for trees.  In contrast to woods, there are fewer trees and they are taller and more stately.

Mnemonic: FOREST CONTAINS TALL, STATELY TREES


Combinations:

林学 (ringaku) forestry
密林 (mitsurin) dense forest

(Based upon Henshall, 1998)
