In this paper we discuss isomorphic decompositions of regular bipartite graphs into trees and forests. We prove that: (1) there is a wide class of r-regular bipartite graphs that are decomposable into any tree of size r, (2) every r-regular bipartite graph decomposes into any double star of size r, and (3) every 4-regular bipartite graph decomposes into paths P4.
