A class of graphs χ is said to be χ‐bounded, with χ‐binding function f, if for all G ϵ Γ, χ (G) ≦ f (ω(G)), where χ(G) is the chromatic number of G and ω(G) is the clique number of G. It has been conjectured that for every tree T, the class of graphs that do not induce T is χ‐bounded. We show that this is true in the case where T is a tree of radius two.
