This paper is concerned with a particular family of regular 4-connected graphs, called chordal rings. Chordal rings are a variation of ring networks. By adding two extra links (or chords) at each vertex in a ring network, the reliability and fault-tolerance of the network are enhanced. Two spanning trees on a graph are said to be independent if they are rooted at the same vertex, say, r, and for each vertex vner, the two paths from r to v, one path in each tree, are internally disjoint. A set of spanning trees on a given graph is said to be independent if they are pairwise independent. Iwasaki et al. (1999) proposed a linear time algorithm for finding four independent spanning trees on a chordal ring. In this paper, we give a new linear time algorithm to generate four independent spanning trees with a reduced height in each tree. Moreover, a complete analysis of our improvements on the heights of independent spanning trees is also provided
