In this paper, we show that for any even integer t≥4, every 3-connected graph with no K 3,t-minor has a spanning tree whose maximum degree is at most t-1. This result is a common generalization of the result by Barnette (1966) [1] and the one by Chen, Egawa, Kawarabayashi, Mohar, and Ota (2011) [4].
