What would make your thread unique enough about Pathfinder Society to have it in that forum, rather than in Gamer Talk? The problem with creating these kinds of threads in Pathfinder RPG General Discussion, PFS General Discussion, or elsewhere, is that they are not problems unique to Pathfinder or Pathfinder Society—they are endemic to gaming as a whole. From the way you're describing the thread you want to write, I would move it to Gamer Talk, as there's nothing specifically about Pathfinder Society about it.
I'm probably going to be running Kobold Press' Tales of Old Margreave sometime soon. Again, I'm planning to set it in Ustalav, so I'll need to figure out where on the map I'm going to plop a huge, ancient, haunted forest...
Canterwall or Varno would be a good fit, but I think the county of Vieland would be best.

I just am not a fan of MIXING canon established locales with custom locations, so feels... wrong to say there's a forest or building somewhere the campaign setting map doesn't indicate. This will be my first campaign as GM, and I understand a lot is up to me, but haven't got a feel for that kind of creative authority yet lol
That's fair. However, sometimes canon needs to be fired out of a cannon. A lot of places are left deliberately blank for you as a GM to take and create and make your own. We're not going to knock on your door and tell you you're doing it wrong. And the campaign setting is, again, not super-detailed for you to add those forests and buildings wherever you want them.
"Where's Super Spoopy Forest?"
This kind of explanation is not without basis in the real world, and a map purchased in one area of the world could be wildly different than one that is local. Portolans and rutters were national secret-level books for a very long time.
Whatever you plan on doing, just be consistent about it as a GM. After it leaves our hands, Golarion is very much *your* world now—have fun with it. :)
Removed some posts and their responses—this was not the way to handle the OP's question. Please don't insult each other over how you play the game.
