# Random Forests Model

(Redirected from random forest)

A Random Forests Model is an ensemble decision tree model (composed of decisions tree models) produced by a random forest training system.

**Context:**- It can range from being a Random Forests Classification Model to being a Random Forests Ranking Model to being a Random Forests Regression Model.

**See:**Gradient Boosted Tree Model.

- QUOTE: Random forests are a combination of tree predictors such that each tree depends on the values of a random vector sampled independently and with the same distribution for all trees in the forest. The generalization error for forests converges as to a limit as the number of trees in the forest becomes large.
