Yes, but I do not want to display any icon to this node (like leaf or root (folder icon).

How to renderer it.

use a custom tree cell renderer and only display an icon on the nodes that need one.

Why you need comment in this way?!?! In your custom tree cell renderer you can add tool tip for each one of the nodes. Just have a look at DefaultTreeCellRenderer and write your own in the same way...
