Are you looking for a beautiful family tree template for a craft or school project, to display in your home or share with family? A blank, printable family tree can be used for all of these purposes and more. The trick is finding one that’s styled just right for your needs – which is why we have created four unique (and free) family tree options that you can easily print out.
You’ll find images of all of the tree templates below. To use one in your project simply click on the tree itself (or the link under the image) to open a large PDF version which you can download or print. The trees are designed to be printed on standard 8.5 x 11 office paper at the correct resolution so please do not print the image on this page or your tree may come out blurry. Use the provided PDF.
All of our tree templates include spaces for four to five generations – children or parents at the bottom, then grandparents, great-grandparents, and great-great-grandparents at the very top or sides. If you are using one of these for a child’s school project you could easily write the child’s name at the top or bottom of the page if no space is included.
