Root Bosk are one of the many biomes within the Hearthlands, a form of Forest Terrain. On foot, a Hearthling can travel at a running pace through Root Bosk, with a decent level of stamina drain for doing so. You may plow a Bosk to turn it into plowed dirt, but directly paving a Bosk is impossible. Root Bosk are a source of many of the different forageables in the game, as with other forest terrains, so it is a good idea to settle down near or inside of one, particularly when starting out, since they also are a plentiful supply of various materials which are needed in spades during the early portions of the game, such as Blocks of Wood, Boards, Boughs, and edible berries and fruits.

Note: Aurochs and Mouflon are reported to be seen at this terrain type, but rarely. (removed "(rarely)" text-data from animals field in infobox data)

(Just a thought. Those cases might be just stray animals, if spotted relative near the terrain border. Discuss at talk page if needed.)
