Hi,I was reading my CCNA guide on the topic called spanning trees.
I know spanning trees reduces collision broadcast in a network.What I would like to know is how many Spanning Trees that can be created on Network if there are huge amount of switches for a large network.
Thanks in advance.

Its got some neat information on spanning trees and you might want to read it.
My guess is that there are no theoretical limitations since everytime you introduce a new bridge or switch which support STP, it will automatically configure its port to a nondesignated or designated port.
I would be very interestead in your findings aswell, so make sure you let us know if you find anything.
In my experience, I've never seen any customers use STP, but that dosent mean its useless. It all depends on your network topology and what your trying to achive.
