A forest contains one or tree, with each tree containing one or more
domains. In an AD, you need at least one forest. You would have
additional branches if you needed a different top level DNS space.
Domains are trusted and trusting. When you install active
directory on a server it will ask if you are joining a domain, setting
up a new domain in existing tree, or setting up a new tree (and domain)
in an existing forest, or creating a whole new forest.
