This paper gives a direct proof that the leading trace part of the genus zero twistor-string path integral obeys the BCFW recursion relation. This is the first complete proof that the twistor-string correctly computes all tree amplitudes in maximally supersymmetric Yang-Mills theory. The recursion has a beautiful geometric interpretation in twistor space that closely reects the structure of BCFW recursion in momentum space, both on the one hand as a relation purely among tree amplitudes with shifted external momenta, and on the other as a relation between tree amplitudes and leading singularities of higher loop amplitudes. The proof works purely at the level of the string path integral and is intimately related to the recursive structure of boundary divisors in the moduli space of stable maps to .
