Ashenvale forrest has one of a fasinating history. It once was the mainhomelands of the Night Elfves, but during the course of history is ever shrinking. Before the sundering it was beleived to cover an area of around about 1/7 of the world. But sine the sundering and the two contenents its covered over a 1/4. Then during the third war it was ravaged and curesed in several parts to form areas such as Darkshore and Felwood. Allthough due to the mountains and cliffs the areas of Azshara and Winterspring.
Also in recent times the Warsong Clan has started a deforestation plan for the Horde causing a conflict against the Silverwing Sentinels. The Valley inwhich they fight in known as Warsong Gulch.
The Elfves have only pocketfuls of bases left, the main one being Astranaar. Where as the Horde are booming with the aid of the Goblins and Trolls they have several bases and Holds. The Two main ones for most adventuers with flightpoints are the Splintertree Post and the Zoram'Gar Outpost.
At the Back of the Splintertree Post compound in the tunnels is the The Earthfury Den .
