    Look at the Internet Explorer WebControls (I think at
    gotdotnet). It contains a pure ASP.NET server control
    tree view. Don't know if it will work on Netscape though -
     I think that getting a true cross browser control that's
    as complex as a treeview for free is unlikely.

    I have tested it on IE for MAC though and it works a
    treat.

    And yes it's free.
