Abstract: It is proved that every visual Gromov hyperbolic space $ X$ whose boundary at infinity has finite capacity dimension, $ \operatorname{cdim}(\partial_{\infty} X)<\infty$, admits a quasiisometric embedding into an $ n$-fold product of metric trees with $ n=\operatorname{cdim}(\partial_{\infty} X)+1$.
