A forest? I've always thought that a forest, to be called a forest, has to be big enough to have a village or two in it - and to be dense enough for the branches to form a tight knit canopy to make the forest a relatively dark place.

A wood is smaller, doesn't have a village in it, and the trees are sparser and don't form an inter-locking canopy so there is a lot of undergrowth etc.

As for a copse that's a bit like a hedgerow that's grown too big but isn't as big as a wood yet but still has well enough trees to interest people who want to coppice it for a wood supply.

What gets me is....what's the definition of a spinney?

How big does a wood have to be before its a forest.. and how small does it need to be before its a cops

Someone asked this on FB. I found an answer to the first part (but will see if you corroborate my answer) but couldn't find a definite answer about the copse.
