Our first aim of this paper is to define maximal operators a-quadratic variation and of a-conditional quadratic variation for vectorvalued tree martingales and to show that these maximal operators and maximal operators of vector-valued tree martingale transforms are all sublinear operators. The second purpose is to prove that maximal operator inequalities of a-quadratic variation and of a-conditional quadratic variation for vector-valued tree martingales hold provided 2 ${\leq}$ a < $\infty$ by means of Marcinkiewicz interpolation theorem. Based on a result of reference [10] and using Marcinkiewicz interpolation theorem, we also propose a simple proof of maximal operator inequalities for vector-valued tree martingale transforms, under which the vector-valued space is a UMD space.
