Hi @mxn.wls!

The noisy keyword argument in the forest.pyqvm backend simply initializes a pyQVM quantum computer, with noisy=True. It is equivalent to the following pyQuil command:

qc = get_qc("9q-pyqvm", noisy=True)

For more details on the get_qc command and the pyQVM noise models, please see the pyQuil documentation:
