Béla Bollobás [1] conjectured the following. For any positive integer Δ and real 0 <c <½ there exists an n0 with the following properties. If n ≥ n0, T is a tree of order n and maximum degree Δ, and G is a graph of order n and maximum degree not exceeding cn, then there is a packing of T and G. Here we prove this conjecture. Auxiliary Theorem 2.1 is of independent interest.
