'All the species' represents millions and millions and millions, so the answer is probably no, but explicit parts of it can easily be found.

Here is a great resource: http://tolweb.org/tree/

It has lots of images, facts and references.

Here is one tree of life based on completely sequenced genomes

Here is an online generator of phylogenetic trees discussed in the above articles:
