The Brown Lands was a region across the Anduin from Fangorn Forest. For a long time the Entwives worked in their gardens there. Later Sauron blasted the entire area, which was when it became known as the Brown Lands. Treebeard appeared convinced that the Entwives were not all destroyed but were "lost". Their ultimate fate remains a mystery.1

J.R.R. Tolkien describes in his unfinished index (for The Lord of the Rings) the Brown Lands as a 'translation' of Berennyn (Sindarin baran 'brown, yellow-brown') "a devastated region, east of Anduin, between Lórien and the Emyn Muil".2
