Overhead shot of the 5/8ths sim sized Rubi Forest, a protected Linden Lab property. There are 3 types of trees within the forest: eucalyptuses, brown cypresses and green cypresses, with the brown cypresses normal larger than the green ones. In the below photo, the 3 types of trees can rather clearly be discerned from each other, esp the 2 variations of cypresses. The eucalyptus trees, larger than the green cypresses even, are a little harder to pinpoint in this snapshot, since their foliage is both closer to the color of the ground and spread out a bit more.
There are several varieties of “twinned” trees in the forest, this example being a merger of a eucalyptus and a green cypress. I believe this occurs in the north central part of the forest, not far from Robin Loop running parallel to its entire upper border.
This is a fusion of eucalyptus and brown cypress, closer to VWX Town and the woods’ southern limit.
Intertwined branches of same.
Hucka D. has indicated to me that this is a forest feature called The Notch, made up of 6 brown cypresses sprouting in a “V” shape in its southwest area. The Notch can be clearly seen in the overhead photo above. Hucka D. has also recently indicated to me that other forest features have been named in the past but haven’t been revealed to me yet. All in good time, he recites.
Looking into The Notch from the west.
Uprooted tree, with only the barest of a point touching the ground, even. There may be examples of totally uprooted or “floating” trees in the forest as well — hafta check soon. I’d also like to talk about the grass in the forest shortly.
Eucalpytus trees. These 1 prim linden trees are a remarkable product. All the linden trees and plants have their merit, and of course you run across them all over the place inworld. Not as much as you should in my humble opinion but they can be called ubiquitous still.
Baker Bloch thinks a path may have laterally run through the center of the forest at one time, judging by the green, open area he’s standing in below. Personally I’m not convinced of this.
Baker also likes to often reduce his viewing range while within the forest to make it appear larger and also more misty and mysterious seeming.
