Roots

A HURST (small wooded  area) is better known in placenames like PINEHURST or ELMHURST.  For the ELM of ELMHURST (a place name in Queens, NY and elsewhere), see ELM.      A HORST is a thicket and a HURST means a grove or small wood .

 חרשא K[H]ooRSHAh is a forest in Aramaic ,   חרש K[H]oaReSH is "thicket," wood or bush in the Edenic of Ezekiel31:3. This HRS word is usually a place name in Scripture. Another guttural-Resh forest term is seen at JUNGLE.


Branches

HOLT is an archaic term for a grove or copse, akin to German HOLZ (wood) - note the shifts from Het-Resh-Shin/HRS to HL/T and Z. RUSTIC and, more remotely, FOREST are related  – see  the RS element at BRUSH. There is an Indo-European “root” hule (forest, timber) from a Greek noun "of unknown origin." It includes terms like HYLOZOISM and METHYLENE.
