Abstract: The title statement is proved, and it is shown further that the subcontinua of a dendron actually form a Hilbert cube when (and only when) the branch points of the dendron are dense. Along the way, it is established that whenever a Hilbert cube manifold is compactified into a Hilbert cube factor by the addition of another Hilbert cube factor having Property Z in the compactification, then the resulting space is actually a Hilbert cube.
