How to Quickly Find a TreeNode

Hi I currently search my tree by using a recursive function.

    Public Function FindANodeRecursive(ByVal nodeList As TreeNodeCollection, ByVal myId As Object) As TreeNode
        Dim targetNode As TreeNode = Nothing
        For Each aNode As TreeNode In nodeList

            'searches for Node with matching Id.  the ID is stored in treenode.tag
            If aNode.Tag = myId Then

                Return aNode
                Exit Function

            ElseIf aNode.Nodes.Count > 0 Then

                'if nodes is a folder and has children scan it
                targetNode = Me.FindANodeRecursive(aNode.Nodes, myId)
                If Not targetNode Is Nothing Then
                    Return targetNode
                End If

            End If
        Next

        Return targetNode

    End Function

Something the recursive function is very slow.  Is there a better way of finding a treenode??

 One way I was thinking of was using a hashtable with treenode's tag as the key, and the treenode as the value.  This way I can just search the hashtable to find the right node.    Would this be a good idea? also Is there a treenode added event that can listen to when A treenode is added to my tree??  This way I don't have to go through all my code and adding the new keys each time I add a node.
