tree: The filesystem (or filesystem hierarchy) in a Linux system is often described as being a tree (I usually think of it as an inverted tree, or a tree starting from the main trunk and going down to the roots). There is one root (the main trunk in my analogy) of the filesystem, denoted by "/". Beneath the main root, subdirectories create branches off the main root.

Sometimes the filesystem is visually represented as a tree, in programs like graphic file managers. Try running the command line program tree.
