hi Kanchan, in simple words imagine its raining at a crowded place and all people have their umbrellas opened. The umbrellas will touch each other and thus very less rain will pass through the cover. That's exactly what tree canopy is, if you see from above it'll look as a green spread .And density is simply the amount of shadow on ground due to tree canopy above in an area.

Therefore more the shadow on ground = more the dense the forest is = more the tree canopy density.
