Clearing vs Glade

Hello everybody,

I'm wondering if there's a difference between clearing and glade in a forest or both mean the same thing?

Thank you in advance!

    A glade is natural. It is an open place in the forest which occurs naturally.

    A clearing may be natural, or it may be man made.

    A glade is a clearning, but a clearing might not be a glade.
