We are having some
performance issue with the tree. It seems very slow to have the tree structure
rendered when under heavy use with numbers of users.

The xml document is very
simple with only one node. Do you have any recommendations to improve the
performance of rendering the tree initially, or possibly turn off some of the
features?

The
performance of tree depends on size of tree and tree structure.

In
smartXMLParsing mode, tree works fine with XML of big size, if it has no more
than 100 children per branch (was tested with 50000 item tree).

In
case of many children per branch situation, the distributedParsing mode can
provide better user experience.
