We define for every dendroidal set $X$ a chain complex and show that this assignment determines a left Quillen functor. Then we define the homology groups $H_n (X)$ as the homology groups of this chain complex. This generalizes the homology of simplicial sets. Our main result is that the homology of $X$ is isomorphic to the homology of the associated spectrum $\mathcal{K}(X)$ as discussed in previous work by the authors. Since these homology groups are sometimes computable we can identify some spectra $\mathcal{K}(X)$ which we could not identify before.
