Skógarkerfill vex villtur í Evrópu og Asíu. Hann hefur verið fluttur langt út fyrir heimkynni sín til ræktunar í görðum. Líklegt er að skógarkerfill hafi borist hingað til lands fyrir tæpri öld, en elstu heimildir um hann í gögnum Náttúrufræðistofnunar eru frá Akureyri árið 1927.

Anthriscus sylvestris, known as cow parsley, wild chervil, wild beaked parsley, Queen Anne’s lace or keck, is a herbaceous biennial or short-lived perennial plant in the family Apiaceae (Umbelliferae), genus Anthriscus. It is also sometimes called mother-die (especially in the UK), a name that is also applied to the common hawthorn. It is native to Europe, western Asia and northwestern Africa; in the south of its range in the Mediterranean region, it is limited to higher altitudes. It is related to other diverse members of Apiaceae, such as parsley, carrot, hemlock and hogweed. It is often confused with Daucus carota which is also known as Queen Anne’s lace or wild carrot, also a member of the Apiaceae.
