Make an Class which has two Variables notes and  newwork of String type, attach this Object with the tag object of the nodes, On Focus of any node, populate the strings in the RichTextBoxes by picking the values from Tag object.

Now how to save a Tree you can see the following example

Please, I am so slow...

When you select a Node, you want to view its contents in a richTextBox?

This is how you can load a file line by line.

Dim file_name As String = DataFile()
        Dim stream_reader As New IO.StreamReader(file_name)
        Dim line As String

        ' Read the file one line at a time.
        line = stream_reader.ReadLine()
        Do While Not (line Is Nothing)
            ' Trim and make sure the line isn't blank.
            line = line.Trim()
            If line.Length > 0 Then _
                lstAnimals.Items.Add(line)

            ' Get the next line.
            line = stream_reader.ReadLine()
        Loop
        lstAnimals.SelectedIndex = 0
        stream_reader.Close()
/////////////////////////////


and this is how you determine which node is clicked by attaching a listener to the TreeView and finding the node on click

Private Sub TreeView1_MouseDown(ByVal sender As Object, _
ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.MouseEventArgs) Handles
TreeView1.MouseDown

Dim Node As System.Windows.Forms.TreeNode

If e.Button = MouseButtons.Left Then
Node = TreeView1.GetNodeAt(New System.Drawing.Point(e.X, e.Y))
If Not Node Is Nothing Then Debug.WriteLine(Node.Text)
End If

End Sub
