We study the number of connected spanning subgraphs f(d,b) (n) on the generalized Sierpinski gasket SG(d,b) (n) at stage n with dimension d equal to two, three and four for b = 2, and layer b equal to three and four for d = 2. The upper and lower bounds for the asymptotic growth constant, defined as zSG(d,b) = lim(v ->infinity) ln f(d,b)(n)/v where v is the number of vertices, on SG(2,b) (n) with b = 2, 3, 4 are derived in terms of the results at a certain stage. The numerical values of zSG(d,b) are obtained.
