    Reading the rules for terrain on P20.  In the example it illustrates a unit in a tower not being able to see an enemy unit in the dead zone behind a hill.  Does the same logic apply to open features and linear obstacles?  Or is it terrain type dependent?  I can see lots of arguments here.  If overlooking an area of rocky ground perhaps a target should be visible but maybe not for a wood.  What about walls and hedgerows?  Viewed from above I would think a target is concealed but still visible.

    I just went for a walk and looked at the trees here, which are pretty young but are easily 30 meters tall.

    I think realistically any “forest” feature would always be a LOS block.

    Hedgerows and any wall substantial enough to show would probably offer concealment, unless you are some distance from it.
