Hylophobia is described as the fear of the woods or forests. It is derived from the Greek terms “hylo” meaning “forests” and “phobos” meaning “fear.” It is classified as a specific phobia.

Fear of the unknown The thought of being in a creepy forest and not knowing what will happen can make them apprehensive, especially at night where it may appear frightening. In a dimly lit environment, the branches of trees can project terrifying images. Seeing the shadows of moving leaves or hearing the sound of swaying branches may scare them since this kind of setting is often portrayed in horror movies and Halloween references.
Manner of upbringing If parents have been warning them as a child to keep away from creepy forest, it may cause them to develop this kind of phobia. Due to the constant reminder that it may pose as a threat to them, they may perceive the forest as a dangerous place. Hereditary and genetic factors Specific phobias like Hylophobia may be connected to one’s genetics or some hereditary factors. For example, if they are related to family members whose fight or flight response is easily activated, they may also inherit this trait. External Experiences and reports Being able to see a family member or a friend who suffers from Hylophobia may cause their phobia to grow even worse.
Being exposed to their fear indirectly may also make them even more afraid of forests. These indirect exposures may be from overhearing other people converse about this phobia or watching other people get affected by it on the news or in the movies. Similar to most phobias, Hylophobia has developed as part of a person’s subconscious overprotective mechanism. This may have been triggered by emotional problems they have experienced that have been left unresolved.
