high forest A forest comprising trees of all ages from which it is planned to obtain a crop of timber. The term does not apply to underwood or coppice. It applies equally whether the trees were planted by humans, were self-sown, or were derived from coppice stools. The trunks of the trees remain unbranched up to considerable heights, and grow in strong competition with each other for light. As is implied by this, the density of trees is relatively high.
