I will use a simple model to explore the way in which ‘branches’ form and propagate locally by decoherence in quantum mechanics, aiming to clarify some of the puzzles people have had about the version of the Everrett interpretation explicated by David Wallace. My focus is on understand branches as physical (not purely formal) structures, but I will remain neutral on the further question of whether they really constitute distinct ‘worlds’. (Based on joint work with Nadia Blackshaw and James Ladyman.)
