  • Tkinter automatically maintains a widget tree (via the master and children attributes of each widget instance), so a widget won't disappear when the application's last reference goes away; it must be explicitly destroyed before this happens (using the destroy method).

    —Fredrik Lundh, 'An Introduction to TkInter'

    Admittedly this might be a straightforward on-the-fly syntactic compound, rather than a specific technical term, but I like the sound of 'widget tree'. Also that it consists of masters and children.
