## Abstract

For a tree T of its height equal to or less than ω_{1}, we construct a space X_{T} by attaching a circle to each node and connecting each node to its successors by intervals. H is the Hawaiian earring and H_{1}
^{T}(X) denotes a canonical factor of the first integral singular homology group. The following equivalences hold for an ω_{1}-tree T: (1) π_{1}(X_{ω1}) is embeddable into π_{1}(X_{T}), if and only if H_{1}
^{T}(X)_{ω1}≃Π _{ω1}
^{σ}Z is embeddable into H_{1}
^{T}(X_{T}), if and only if T is not an Aronzajn tree. (2) π_{1}(X_{T}) is embeddable into ××_{ω}Z≃π_{1}(H) if and only if H_{1}
^{T}(X_{T}) is embeddable into Z^{ω}≃H_{1}
^{T}(H) if and only if T is a special Aronzajn tree. (3) π_{1}(X_{T}) has a retract isomorphic to an uncountable free group, if and only if H_{1}
^{T}(X_{T}) has a summand isomorphic to an uncountable free abelian group, if and only if T has an uncountable anti-chain.
