Abstract: We present here an alternative method for designating subtrees of a given tree. The existing method uses pointers towards nodes of the tree. Our method uses access paths, and is thus more independent from the implementation than the existing one. We also show examples of the use of access paths, especially when they are more efficient than pointers, or when they can solve new problems.

Keywords: Graph theory, Trees, Paths in trees
