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.
