Abstract: Suppose that is a Banach space, is a regular method of summability and is a bounded sequence in indexed by the dyadic tree . We prove that there exists a subtree such that: either (a) for any chain of the sequence is summable with respect to or (b) for any chain of the sequence is not summable with respect to . Moreover, in case (a) we prove the existence of a subtree such that if is any chain of , then all the subsequences of are summable to the same limit. In case (b), provided that is the Cesàro method of summability and that for any chain of the sequence is weakly null, we prove the existence of a subtree such that for any chain of any spreading model for the sequence has a basis equivalent to the usual -basis. Finally, we generalize the theory of spreading models to tree-sequences. This also allows us to improve the result of case (b).
