Leave and Branch
Each subnetwork that contains at least one multicast host is know as a leaf. In the case of IPTV, the Home Network utilizing the IPTV service becomes a leaf of the IPTV multicast distribution tree. When new leaves are added to the tree, a branch is created. Branches that no longer contain a leaf will be pruned from the tree.
