Description and location
The Glade was a dreary sort of place located approximately a half a mile from the Buckland Gate in the Old Forest. No tree ever grew there following the hobbits' burning, and the Glade consisted of grass, weeds, nettles, and other minor plants. The leaves were known to be thicker and greener around the edges of the Glade than in other parts of the forest.
Sometime before the War of the Ring, the hostile trees of the Old Forest crept very close to the High Hedge, possibly intending to plant themselves there for good and leaned over it. In response the Bucklanders declared war cutting down hundreds of them and burning them in a great bonfire in the forest which later became the Glade. They also burned the ground in a long strip just east of the Hedge. After this no further trees attempted to bother the Bucklanders ever again but the trees of the Old Forest were unfriendly to outsiders.
