The result format tree, part of the Extension "Semantic Result Formats" extension, can be used to display the query result as a tree, i.e. as an unordered (bulleted) nested HTML list. This result format is very similar to the result format oltree which is used to format query results as numbered lists instead of bulleted lists.

The format ultree is just an alias of this result format.
