What is the difference between `terraform apply` vs. `terraform destroy` when removing resources?

I managed AWS rds instance on Terraform, but the instance is no longer needed so I removed all .tf files for that instance.
In this case, I think I can perform terraform destroy, but do I need to trigger terraform apply before that, or only one of these is enough? I don't fully understand the difference of those two commands when removing resources.
