森林 is much larger than 树林. Only a few trees can be called 树林,even they have very few species .But 森林 has various plants.

In my opinion,森林is larger and exist in the nature,树林 is smaller and can be planted by human.I don't know if I'm right.We have technical explanations of the differences between them. Is it just the difference between forest and jungle?

forest意思是森林 woods意思是树林 比起树林,森林有更多种类和数量的树木,覆盖面更加广泛。 而树林的面积很小,树木的品种和数量也很少。
