Shade found in forest in general (5)
I believe the answer is:
'shade' is the definition.
(I know that tinge is a type of shade)
'in forest in general' is the wordplay.
'in' indicates the answer is hidden within the clue.
'TINGE' can be found hidden inside 'forest in general'.
'found' acts as a link.
(Other definitions for tinge that I've seen before include "Hint of colour" , "Touch (of colour?)" , "Little bit of colour" , "Slight tint" , "A smack" .)
