In this paper, we study the connected subgraph polytope which is the convex hull of the solutions to a related combinatorial optimization problem called the maximum weight connected subgraph problem. We strengthen a cut-based formulation by considering some new partition inequalities for which we give necessary and sufficient conditions to be facet defining. Based on the separation problem associated with these inequalities, we give a complete polyhedral characterization of the connected subgraph polytope on cycles and trees.
