Let the “jump” event J occur if X does indeed remain at the pole at e− until meeting (e− , s); let I ⊆ [0, T ) denote the interval of heights through which X passes after time η and before encountering (e− , s) in the case that J occurs.

The two processes then coincide during [0, T ] provided that the G-process departs from the pole at Y (t) by jumping to the pole indexed by an offspring of Y (t), and does not return to the pole at Y (t) during [0, T ].
Infinite cycles in the random stirring model on trees
First, X B (v,h) (0) = (v , h); the process then rises at unit speed on the pole at v until either it reaches (v , 1), when it jumps to (v , 0), or until it reaches the joint of a bar in B0 , when it jumps to the other joint of this bar.
