Top tier forestry and woodworking require the gathering and crafting of Ilex or Mallorn.
Ilex can be found in Eregion, and Mallorn in Moria; therefore Ilex can be found on the route to Moria.
Specifically, to find the Ilex, which is rare and sparse, you need to get to Echad Dunnan, and the Ilex can be found to the west of there. There is a road which can be followed in Eregion, and there are several travel stations on the way. There are also several milestones which can help you along, if you want to use them.
Note that you need to be level 40 or higher to use the travel stations. And the monsters in the area, for a character of level 40 or thereabouts, are very dangerous, but can be avoided, with care.
On the bright side, there is plenty of Black Ash to be found in Eregion, and also lots of strawberries, raspberries, etc.
Note: I hope nobody thinks this is a spoiler: my view is that the information here is no more than might be exchanged IC between Grand Master Foresters and Woodworkers, and available freely to Masters of the Woodworkers' Guild.
