Perflare is both intransitive (blow all around) and transitive (blow through [something]). Here it's transitive. We should get duolingo explaining clues though...

Why not "Venti per silvas perflant"? I read here "winds blow the forests".

The through is contained in the "per" of "perflant"

A previous sentence was “Ventus iratus per villam perflat”.
