Random forest vs tree ensemble

Hi, I was just wondering if there is a difference between random forest and tree ensemble. when I use both learners, they appear to be very similar.

you are right that these appear quite similar.The random forest is a special kind of tree ensemble learner, and in fact they also share some underlying code. You can configure the tree ensemble node that it would do exactly what the random forest node does. The tree ensemble learner however offers much more configuration options than the random forest, e.g. optional binary or midpoint splits, and most options in the Ensemble configuration tab. And that’s where they differ.

Hope that answers your question :slight_smile:
