#### Abstract

We exhibit a monoidal structure on the category of finite sets indexed by
P-trees for a finitary polynomial endofunctor P. This structure
categorifies the monoid scheme (over Spec N) whose semiring of functions
is (a P-version of) the Connes—Kreimer bialgebra H of rooted trees
(a Hopf algebra after base
change to Z and collapsing H_{0}). The monoidal structure is itself
given by a polynomial functor,
represented by three easily described set maps; we show that these
maps are the same as those occurring in the
polynomial representation of the free monad on P.
