The name for a group of trees depends on the number of trees in the vicinity: small groups of trees are called groves or copses, while forests refer to larger groups of trees that cover landscapes and may include entire biospheres, such as rainforests and tiagas. Groups of trees exist around the world and vary in name depending on size of the tree lot as well as region of the world.
