I wrote the sentence below today and I realised that it was ambiguous and probably grammatically incorrect. I don't want the reader to think the trees are visibly growing as the MC walks; rather, I would like to convey that the tree trunks are very large, and increasingly so, relative to those at the edge of the forest. I could say so explicitly, as I have done just then, but that seems unwieldy and wordy. Do you have any tips for eliminating ambiguity? [Not sure if this is a valid discussion or a problem due to the first day back writing in a while.] Or, maybe as below, which I also don't like.
