The use of the word implies human creation or intervention.
A Sequoia grove (cited as an example) is natural, and not a human creation
For cultivation, spacing and layout are important, and vary according to which species of tree is planted. Grove layout must
  • enable the planned number of tree to obtain the maximum exposure to sunlight during all stages of growth
  • allow for the efficient operation of harvesting equipment
Spacing and layout are important in tree cultivation whatever the situation; they don't make, or not make, it a grove, and are completely irrelevant to whether the term 'grove' is used or not.

Mini Forest?Edit

Could a grove possibly be described in a simple way as a 'Miniature Forest?' Or would that be innacurate.

No. I've checked a few dictionaries, and I think Merriam-Webster sums it up best: "A wood without underbrush" (thus including a grove of sequioa) or "a planting of fruit or nut trees." The wood without underbrush can encapsulate both and touches on the German senses of the words "Hain" and the archaic "Rode." BohemianRhapsodie (talk) 17:38, 4 May 2010 (UTC)
