This paper proves that the typenumber of a tree T is independent of the number of the pages in a book-embedding, and is equal to either)D(r)| or \D(T)\ + 1, where D(T) is the set of integers which are degrees of the vertices of T. We then completely characterize trees having typenumber |D(r)| and trees having typenumber \D(T)\ +1.
