Glade

 

a relatively small open area in a forest. Glades form when trees are destroyed as a result of wind, heavy snow, or fire. Forest renewal in glades is difficult because of the formation of ground cover and unfavorable temperature. A large number of glades negatively influences the growth of a forest.
