TREE. A woody plant, which in respect of thickness and height grows greater than any other plant.
     2. Trees are part of the real estate while growing, and before they are severed from the freehold; but as soon as they are cut down, they are personal property.
     3. Some trees are timber trees, while others do not bear that denomination. Vide Timber, and 2 Bl. Com. 281.
     4. Trees belong to the owner of the land where they grow, but if the roots go out of one man's land into that of another, or the branches spread over the adjoining estates, such roots or branches may be cut off by the owner of the land into which they thus grow. Rolle's R. 394; 3 Bulst. 198; Vin. Ab. Trees, E; and tit. Nuisance, W 2, pl. 3; 8 Com. Dig. 983; 2 Com. Dig. 274; 10 Vin. Ab. 142; 20 Viii. Ab. 415; 22 Vin. Ab. 583; 1 Supp. to Ves. jr. 138; 2 Supp. to Ves. jr. 162, 448; 6 Ves. 109.
     5. When the roots grow into the adjoining land, the owner of such land may lawfully claim a right to hold the tree in common with the owner of the land where it was planted; but if the branches only overshadow the adjoining land, and the root does not enter it, the tree wholly belongs owner of the estate where the roots grow. 1 Swift's Dig. 104; 1 Hill. Ab. 6; 1 Ld. Raym. 737. Vide 13 Pick. R. 44; 1 Pick., R. 224; 4 Mass. R. 266; 6 N. H. Rep. 430; 3 Day, 476; 11 Co. 50; Rob. 316; 2 Rolle, It. 141 Moo. & Mal. 112; 11 Conn.

In the construction of the decision or regression tree diagram, CART, CHAID and Exhaustive CHAID algorithms are non-parametric techniques applied for performing the statistical analysis of nominal, ordinal and scale (continuous) variables (Ali et al., 2015).
Use the attack tree diagram and vague set arithmetic operations to calculate the possible malfunction probability of the main goal.
The most significant relationships are used to control the structure of a tree diagram. The goal of classification trees is to predict or explain responses on a categorical dependent variable.
As an additional result of this study, it is virtually seen on all of the phylogenetic tree diagrams that the fat-tailed sheep were clearly separeted from the others.
The mode of discovering phylogenetic relationships by creating bifurcating tree diagrams (i.e., cladograms) and testing them against what is known about organisms often proves frustrating.
These have less apparatus than Aspects-model tree diagrams in rhetorics using transformational grammar.
High-speed Internet connections have now opened the door to intensive online applications that display results through physical representations--maps, constellation charts, tree diagrams or two-dimensional shapes--and group results into easily accessible subtopics.
Tree diagrams or Mind Maps[R] can be created to show all of the possibilities that were examined as well as technologies that were being used by the competition (5).
These data squares were color coded (i.e., yellow for area, green for volume, blue for width, white for length, pink for perimeter, orange for mass) so that the measurement data could easily be distinguished and organized into different graphic representations, including vertical and horizontal bars, number-line plots, pie graphs, pictographs, and tree diagrams.
All chapters include decision tree diagrams, but they are confusing and did not easily augment the explanations in the text.
