Sections & Trees

An explanation on sections and trees in Umbraco
The Umbraco backoffice consists of sections (sometimes referred to as applications) which contain Trees.
Each section is identified by its name in the top navigation ribbon of the Umbraco Backoffice.
For example, when you load the backoffice you'll see that the 'Content' section contains one tree: the content tree whereas the 'Settings' section contains a number of trees: Stylesheets, Document Types, Media Types, etc...
You can create your own sections and trees to extend Umbraco.
