15 trees does not make a forest, but a wood/woods perhaps.

Fifteen trees make a grove. Not a forest.

Good catch I'll mark it for use in the new tree. Thank you.

Does Greek have a word for a grove of trees?

There is the word άλσος that's used for a grove, at least most of the times. ^.^ Περιβόλι is for an orchard.
