The old trees block the way of the hobbits and force them to the Southeast and thus deeper into the forest.

The old forest block the way of the hobbits, who were approaching to their journey indicated, so they were forced out of their current location as it was blocked by the thick foliage which was caused by the old trees covering the path of their intended journey, so they were pushed back way deeper into the forest and make them waste a lot of precious time
