A tree typically has many secondary branches supported clear of the ground by the trunk. This trunk typically contains woody tissue for strength, and vascular tissue to carry materials from one part of the tree to another.
In an industrial or industry context, a "tree" typically refers to an apparatus used in the oil and gas industry to control the flow of fluids in a well. It is a mechanical structure that sits on top of a wellhead and is used to control the flow of oil or gas from the well. Examples of types of tree include: -Christmas tree: It is an assembly of valves, spools, and fittings installed on the top of a wellhead, that provides a means of controlling the flow of oil and gas from the well.
- Master flow control tree: This type of tree is used to control the flow of fluids from multiple wells and is typically used in offshore drilling operations.
- Subsea tree: This type of tree is used to control the flow of fluids from a subsea well and is typically used in deepwater drilling operations.
