The noun 'tree' is a common noun, a general word for a large, woody plant.

A proper noun is the name of a specific person, place, or thing; for example:

  • General Sherman, Sequoia National Park, California; the world's largest tree
  • Plum Tree, Indiana or Green Tree, Pennsylvania
  • Dollar Tree, Inc. (chain stores)
