The forest laws were sharp and stern,
The forest blood was keen;
They lashed together for life and death
Beneath the hollies green.
"A New Forest Ballad" by Charles Kingsley
Were each forest tree to come alive,
And each leaf a voice be granted,
The law of God’s mercy they’d contrive
In vain in words to have chanted;
Since Life’s Light now shines for ever more,
In old and young firmly planted!

Tangled deepest: Shy of view,
The woodman lorn holds, beast and bird, with you
The wild unwritten by-law, large and lax,—
Guild of the forest free.
Down in the sounding wood there goes his vehement axe.
"Song The Eigth" by Thomas Aird

In science:

At z < 2.2 the continuum shows no Lyman-α forest in our filter sets, but only a redshift invariant power-law shape.
Object Classification in Astronomical Multi-Color Surveys
However in the case of forest fires (or earthquakes etc.), the systems are far from equilibrium and the power-law behaviour, that is criticality, does not require fine-tuning — it is self-organised.
Complexity: An Introduction
Fitting a power law to this fall-off, and extrapolating to the present day, one would predict that there should be essentially no detectable Lyman α absorbers left, making the advantages of UV studies of the forest moot.
