RFC 7950, "The YANG 1.1 Data Modeling Language", August 2016

Section 3 says:

o  schema tree: The definition hierarchy specified within a module.

It should say:

o  schema tree: The hierarchy of schema nodes defined in the set of all modules 
   implemented by a server, as specified in the YANG library data [RFC7895].


The original definition of the term has two problems:

1. Schema tree is not limited to a single module. Some YANG constructs, such as augment and leafref type, may refer to a schema node that is defined in another module.

2. Apart from schema nodes, YANG modules contain definitions that do not contribute to the schema tree: groupings, typedefs, identities etc.
