On your resource, right click on your tree control -> properties->more styles-> Tool tip (checked)
This is by default for any tree control.
If the length of the tree item is going beyond the width of the tree control, tool tip will be shown to the user.
In your case probably your tree control width is 30 char long. That could be the reason you see tool tip for those items exceeding the length of 30 chars.If you make it short, you will see tool tips for all items.

I meant if you make ur CTreeCtrl width shorter. (say to display 10 chars)  all the items in your control with length more than 10 chars will have tool tip. This is the default behaviour of the tree control.

You can also refer to
http://www.codeguru.com/Cpp/controls/treeview/article.php/c3995/
for explicitly setting the tool tip to the tree item text or data.
Plz have a look at the method 'CTreeCtrlCh::OnToolTipText( UINT id, NMHDR * pNMHDR, LRESULT * pResult )'
