Tree and Leaf is a collection of works by J.R.R. Tolkien.

The original 1964 edition only contained reprints (with some alterations) of the essay "On Fairy-Stories" and the short story "Leaf by Niggle", together with a new "Introductory Note" by J.R.R. Tolkien.[1]

From 1988, Tree and Leaf also included "Mythopoeia",[1] and a later edition added "The Homecoming of Beorhtnoth Beorhthelm's Son".[2]
