How to visualize decision trees

Decision trees are the fundamental building block of gradient boosting machines and Random Forests(tm), probably the two most popular machine learning models for structured data. Visualizing decision trees is a tremendous aid when learning how these models work and when interpreting models. Unfortunately, current visualization packages are rudimentary and not immediately helpful to the novice. For example, we couldn’t find a library that visualizes how decision nodes split up the feature space. So, we’ve created a general package (part of the animl library) for scikit-learn decision tree visualization and model interpretation.
