The paper starts with a survey of related works. In the second part, the author recalls a construction of the branching mechanism of a loop in two loops in a \(1+1\)-dimensional theory. Then by using a binary Galton-Watson process, the author iterates the branching mechanism and obtains a random tree labelled by the loop space, that satisfies a certain Markov property.
