I am looking for a word to describe a natural landscape covered in natural green (trees etc). Like looking at a massive forest viewed from above.

Two rivers forked in a _______ landscape/scenery etc

Re the comments: I have tried to look for a word that means this, through dictionaries and the like, but cannot find anything. Originally, I wasn't looking for a direct synonym of green, and it was a coincidence when verdant appeared.

    Just because there are other bad questions unclosed on this site does not absolve you of our research requirements and using a basic thesaurus. Please take this off-topic discussion to its chat room where I’ve moved the discussion to, or better yet to our meta site, – tchrist Jan 6 '19 at 18:32

  • If you don't mind, may I ask that you please meditate upon this guidance from Jon Ericson and then consider expanding this into a proper answer? Jon’s post explains why we prefer answers with actual context and explanations, not mere copying of someone else’s words from some googled reference work without including any new content in your own words. Otherwise we aren’t building up a library of expert answers by creating new content; we’re only showing off our own google-fu and adding nothing to our growing expert library. – tchrist Jan 5 '19 at 20:39
  • I'd like to delete the answer, but I cannot since it has been selected. Is there any way to bypass that? – Michael Harvey Jan 5 '19 at 21:53
  • Your wish is granted. – tchrist Jan 5 '19 at 23:38
  • I’ve reneged on the deletion because of the associated controversy this has stirred up, and also so that you can have the choice to delete it or not as you now see fit. – tchrist Jan 6 '19 at 18:27
