As the third day of their voyage wore on the lands changed slowly: the trees thinned and then failed altogether. On the eastern bank to their left they saw long formless slopes stretching up and away towards the sky; brown and withered they looked, as if fire had passed over them, leaving no living blade of green: an unfriendly waste without even a broken tree or a bold stone to relieve the emptiness. They had come to the Brown Lands that lay, vast and desolate, between Southern Mirkwood and the hills of the Emyn Muil.

An Entwife in the Brown Lands, caught up the conflict of Sauron and the Last Alliance.

(Sidenote: I like the symbolism of the Bristlecone Pine for Entwives. It’s not only the form, even their longevity and how they are speaks to my headcanon. Ref 1. Ref 2.)
