coppice \ˈkä-pəs\ noun: 1. a thicket, grove or growth of small trees,
 2. forest originating mainly from shoots or root suckers rather than seed

Etymology: Middle English copies cutover area overgrown with brush, from Middle French copeis, from Old French, from Vulgar Latin colpaticium, from colpare to cut, from Late Latin colpus blow

If you’re in a traipsing mood, why not traipse through a coppice?
