An extensive wood; a large tract of land covered with trees; in the United States, a wood of native growth, or a tract of woodland which has never been cultivated.
A large extent or precinct of country, generally waste and woody, belonging to the sovereign, set apart for the keeping of game for his use, not inclosed, but distinguished by certain limits, and protected by certain laws, courts, and officers of its own.
To cover with trees or wood.
An ecosystem dominated by trees, with a unique combination of plants, animals, microbes, soil, and climate.
An ecosystem dominated by trees. Examples of forest biomes are: boreal forest; tropical savanna; deciduous forest.
Trees growing close together creating lower light at the understory level.
Ecosystem dominated by trees. Major forest biomes include tropical evergreen forest, tropical savanna, deciduous forest, and boreal forest.
The Australian definition (National Forest Inventory) is 'an area dominated by trees having usually a single stem and a mature stand height exceeding two metres with an existing or potential crown cover equal to or greater than 20%'. This definition is somewhat different to that of the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization, which is 'land with tree crown cover of more than 10% and area of more than 0.5 ha. Trees should be able to reach a minimum height of 5 metres at maturity'.
area of land covered by trees
Under the Kyoto Protocol a forest is a minimum area of land of 1.0 hectare with tree crown cover (or equivalent stocking level) of more than 10-30 per cent with trees with the potential to reach a minimum height of 2-5 metres at maturity in situ. A forest may consist either of closed forest formations where trees of various storeys and undergrowth cover a high proportion of the ground or open forest. Young natural stands and all plantations which have yet to reach a crown density of 10-30 per cent or tree height of 2-5 metres are included under forest, as are areas normally forming part of the forest area which are temporarily unstocked as a result of human intervention such as harvesting or natural causes but which are expected to revert to forest. Canada has yet to make a decision on the two parameters for which a range is specified. Project developers should assume that an area would only be considered forest if it has minimum crown cover of 30% and a minimum potential tree height of 5 metres.

An ecosystem that, when intact, is characterized by tree cover usually consisting of stands varying in characteristics such as species, structure, composition, age~lass, and commonly including streams and wildlife. while forest ecosystems are not bound by property lines, for the purpose of this document, "forest" may be delimited by ownership or other qualifying characteristics. Management activities necessary to achieve this goal shall be carried out. In addition, all management activities and economic uses that do not conflict with the primary purpose, including logging when appropriate, may be carried out.

Plant communities which exist along floodplains or on the eastern side of rivers where they were protected from fires. They are dominated by trees that are intolerant of fire and can grow in poorly drained soils, although bur oak trees can be a part of this community. In Northeastern Illinois, the word "forest" is often used interchangeably with "woodland" or "woods," as in the "Big Woods."

A forest is an ecosystem, an association of plants and animals. Trees are its dominant feature. They provide many of the benefits of forests like habitat, quality water, recreation, climatic amelioration and wood products. The plants and animals that make up a forest are inter-dependent and often essential to its integrity.
