lightgbm.plot_tree(booster, ax=None, tree_index=0, figsize=None, dpi=None, show_info=None, precision=3, orientation='horizontal', **kwargs)[source]

Plot specified tree.


It is preferable to use create_tree_digraph() because of its lossless quality and returned objects can be also rendered and displayed directly inside a Jupyter notebook.

  • booster (Booster or LGBMModel) – Booster or LGBMModel instance to be plotted.

  • ax (matplotlib.axes.Axes or None, optional (default=None)) – Target axes instance. If None, new figure and axes will be created.

  • tree_index (int, optional (default=0)) – The index of a target tree to plot.

  • figsize (tuple of 2 elements or None, optional (default=None)) – Figure size.

  • dpi (int or None, optional (default=None)) – Resolution of the figure.

  • show_info (list of strings or None, optional (default=None)) – What information should be shown in nodes. Possible values of list items: ‘split_gain’, ‘internal_value’, ‘internal_count’, ‘internal_weight’, ‘leaf_count’, ‘leaf_weight’, ‘data_percentage’.

  • precision (int or None, optional (default=3)) – Used to restrict the display of floating point values to a certain precision.

  • orientation (string, optional (default='horizontal')) – Orientation of the tree. Can be ‘horizontal’ or ‘vertical’.

  • **kwargs – Other parameters passed to Digraph constructor. Check for the full list of supported parameters.


ax – The plot with single tree.
