Our server currently tuns xyz.com and we want to add abc.com. What is the best way to do this? Adding a tree or a forest?

abc.com and xyz.com are examples of two different forests. You can not add xyz.com to your existing forest. Doesn't work that way.

You can add a child domain to the abc.com forest which would take the form xyz.abc.com

But you may wish to review why you want to add xyz.com to begin with.

Most that add child domains really just needed to add a OU to the existing domain because they did not understand AD and child domains.
