Definitions for: Grove


[n] garden consisting of a small cultivated wood without undergrowth
[n] a small growth of trees without underbrush



Webster (1913) Definition: Grove, n. [AS. graf, fr. grafan to dig. The original
sense seems to have been a lane cut through trees. See
Grave, v., and cf. Groove.]
A smaller group of trees than a forest, and without
underwood, planted, or growing naturally as if arranged by
art; a wood of small extent.

Note: The Hebrew word Asherah, rendered grove in the
Authorized Version of the Bible, is left untranslated
in the Revised Version. Almost all modern interpreters
agree that by Asherah an idol or image of some kind is
intended.
