well if your problem is really the time it takes to retrieve the data and not the time it takes to throw it into the treeview then you can

                  treeView1.Nodes.Add(new System.Windows.Forms.TreeNode("loading data, please wait...."));
                  this.Refresh();
                  object[] nodes = GetAWholeBunchOfNodes();
                  treeView1.Nodes.Clear();
                  foreach( object node in nodes )
                  {
                        treeView1.Nodes.Add(node);
                  }

If it is taking lots of time throw it on the treeview then you can use a lable placed just above the treeview and change its text accordingly..

label1.Text = "Loading data...Please wait"
 object[] nodes = GetAWholeBunchOfNodes();
               treeView1.Nodes.Clear();
               foreach( object node in nodes )
               {
                    treeView1.Nodes.Add(node);
               }
label1.Text ="";

For some reason I do not want to make use of an extra label to display text messages.
