You need to define the behaviour of your nodes a little clearer.

Do you want the node to stay on the same level or can it change depth?  Should it only move up/down swapping with the next node at the same depth?

A
+-B
|  +-C
|  +-D
+-E
| +-F
| +-G
+-H
  +-I
  +-J

In the tree above, if you move B down, should it swap with C or should it swap with E?
Should D be able to move down?  or should it swap with E or F?

Hi
if you move B down then It should swap with E and if you move G up it should swap with F only.

The following allows you to move the current node up/down in the treeview while maintaining its depth:

Public Class Form1
    Inherits System.Windows.Forms.Form

#Region " Windows Form Designer generated code "

    Public Sub New()
        MyBase.New()

        'This call is required by the Windows Form Designer.
        InitializeComponent()

        'Add any initialization after the InitializeComponent() call

    End Sub

    'Form overrides dispose to clean up the component list.
    Protected Overloads Overrides Sub Dispose(ByVal disposing As Boolean)
        If disposing Then
            If Not (components Is Nothing) Then
                components.Dispose()
            End If
        End If
        MyBase.Dispose(disposing)
    End Sub

    'Required by the Windows Form Designer
    Private components As System.ComponentModel.IContainer

    'NOTE: The following procedure is required by the Windows Form Designer
    'It can be modified using the Windows Form Designer.  
    'Do not modify it using the code editor.
    Friend WithEvents TreeView1 As System.Windows.Forms.TreeView
