The test differs whether the tree is rooted or not. An urooted tree is considered binary if all its nodes are of degree three (i.e., three edges connect to each node). A rooted tree is considered binary if all nodes (including the root node) have exactly two descendant nodes, so that they are of degree three expect the root which is of degree 2.
