The Good Earth challenge, Woodland - 'A Home Away From Home' : Kortirion

Title: A Home Away From Home
Author: Kortirion
Characters: Legolas and Gimli
Rating: G
Source: Post Ring War
Disclaimer: Tolkien loved trees too.

Legolas chose the spot carefully; sheltered, with good loam to plant the many saplings needed to make this new woodland in Ithilien. Beech, he’d decided after much consideration, with a glade of Sweet Chestnuts; their twisting trunks would add pleasing texture... and some smooth White Poplars perhaps? The close-planted trees grew swiftly under the Elves care, were trained into ribbed pillars, arches, vaults, corridors...

Gimli gazed about in wonder at the intertwined trunks, smooth and grey as fine granite.

“Why... they could almost be carved of stone!” he breathed.

Legolas smiled, “I would have you feel welcome here, my friend”
