While working on a short story I faltered when I tried to depict in a concise and yet expressive manner a fact that main character was at the edge of a birch woodland. I don’t really like a word combination “birch woodland” or “birch forest” and I'd like to express this by means of one word. To give you an idea in Russian you can denote any woodland type consisting mostly of one tree species using one word without explicitly saying XYZ forest (thicket, grove or whatnot). Let’s say there is an aspen copse. Instead of saying this word combination you can just say aspen with a special suffix. This style is more prevalent in literature rather than colloquial language for that matter. I’m trying to understand whether there is something similar in English. I’m aware only of a handful of examples namely pinery (a grove/woodland with pines) and some more esoteric ones such as oakery(oak woodland) and osier-bed (grove with osiers/small willows). I’m not even sure whether last two of my examples do not represent some kind of idiosyncratic vocabulary. My first idea was merely to add “wood” ending to a name of particular tree in order to obtain a desired word such as "birchwood" for a birch forest. However I’m not sure whether this will “work” for all trees because for instance “maplewood” rather alludes to some kind of timber and carpentry material than to a picturesque and vivid description of a grove. I’m looking for a help of native speakers who are well aware of a proper literary style to describe a grove/copse with one tree species using only one word.
UPD. Downvoters please care to explain your reasoning. I do believe my question raises some sort of interesting discussion even though may not have a proper answer.
