A directory listing command that produces a depth indented listing of files

# Snap Obsoletion Notice # This snap(tree-strict) has now been superseded by the tree snap and will no longer recieve any updates. Please install the tree snap and remove the tree-strict snap as soon as possible.

If you have any problems regarding the obsoletion, feel free to ask a question on

# Original Description # Tree is a recursive directory listing command that produces a depth indented listing of files, which is colorized ala dircolors if the LS_COLORS environment variable is set and output is to tty. Tree has been ported and reported to work under the following operating systems: Linux, FreeBSD, OS X, Solaris, HP/UX, Cygwin, HP Nonstop and OS/2.

This snap ships the tree command in strict confinement mode, this means that it can only access non-directly-under-hidden-files under your home directory and (optionally) files under /mnt and /media via the removable-media interface, however in contrast with the tree snap it is installable in Ubuntu Core systems.

Run the following command in a terminal to create an alias of the tree command after installing the snap:

 sudo snap alias tree-strict tree

Note that if you just removed tree from APT distribution you will have to run the following command to regenerate GNU Bash's command search hash so that it will fall back to the command provided by the snap:

 hash -r

simply logout and re-login the user session will work.

This snap is maintained by 林博仁(Buo-ren, Lin), and is not endorsed or officially maintained by the upstream developers.
