Let $K$ be a complete discretely valued field with residue field $\kappa$. Let $F$ be a function field in one variable over $K$ and $\mathscr{X}$ a regular proper model of $F$ with reduced special fibre $X$ a union of regular curves with normal crossings. Suppose that the graph associated to $\mathscr{X}$ is a tree (e.g. $F = K(t)$). Let $L/F$ be a Galois extension of degree $n$ with Galois group $G$ and $n$ coprime to char$(\kappa)$. Suppose that $\kappa$ is algebraically closed field or a finite field containing a primitive $n^{\rm th}$ root of unity. Then we show that an element in $F^*$ is a norm from the extension $L/F$ if it is a norm from the extensions $L\otimes_F F_\nu/F_\nu$ for all discrete valuations $\nu$ of $F$.
