Russian term or phrase: "пьяный" лес
Из Пояснительной записки на строительство трубопроводов, раздел "Оползневые процессы и солифлюкция":
quote
Характерными признаками выявления оползневых склонов являлось:
- наличие старых или свежих бровок срыва
- обильное водопроявление на склоне или в его основании
- *"пьяный" лес*.
unquote

Составители объясняют, что это нагромождение корней, бурелома на болотистых участках. В Лингво уже есть пьяная резьба, еще что-то.

So, "drunken" forest ?

"drunken" forest
Explanation:
Похоже, что это тот самый термин. Такие леса есть и на Аляске.

"Actually, it takes a long time for a drunken forest to form. When spruce seeds first drop to the ground and germinate on the future site of a drunken forest, it isn't pock-marked with soupy depressions. The permafrost is still frozen, providing a deceptive foundation. Trees grow normally for perhaps 50 years, until the permafrost gets warm enough to melt and create a thermokarst, the scientific name for a ground slump caused by melting permafrost."
