http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Forest

Forests are differentiated from woodlands by the extent of canopy coverage: in a forest, the branches and the foliage of separate trees often meet or interlock, although there can be gaps of varying sizes within an area referred to as forest. A woodland has a more continuously open canopy, with trees spaced further apart, which allows more sunlight to penetrate to the ground between them (also see: savanna).

Wood/Forest
generally speaking, a forest is a large wood or a collection of woods although the two terms are often interchangeable.
