Planar Fractal Trees

A fractal tree is created via an iterated function system of contractive similarity transformations with scaling ratio r and branching angle theta. Previous research of planar fractal trees has been essentially limited to the two-branch case famously studied by Mandelbrot and Frame. This research extends those results to the three-branch tree and examines results for n-branch planar trees.
