Etonia has an interest in protecting the forest both as a barrier to aggressive neighbors and as a source of abundant resources. The trees around the Monsilt are maybe 30 ft tall. A foot in diameter and 2nd or 3rd generation growth. This extends out about a 1/2 mile. The fields are rotated around the town every few years. The other farms further away are only allowed near natural breaks in the forest. Further into the forest the trees are big and ancient. The environment under those trees is different - less under growth, feels like a cathedral. That is old growth forest. There are large swaths of farms directly around the City of Etonia where the forest has been cleared but beyond that the forest gets the priority and Montsilt is the focus of the activity in the forest.
After the mayor was installed, the wizard Antum Ricewin got an endorsement from Etonia to set up a tower in Monsilt along with 2 apprentices. In addition to training their primary charge was to install magical enhancements to help the farmers and craftsmen in their day to day toils. After Antum's arrival it would not be uncommon to walk into a farmhouse with the dishes cleaning themselves or a bed that makes itself when you rise for the day.
