Is there a way to append a child to a xml string.

For example, I have:

$Element = simplexml_load_string('<tree></tree>');

I want to append a child to the node "tree".

This will not only add the child node, but it will give it some content.
<?php // RAY_temp_pillmill.php

$obj = simplexml_load_string('<tree></tree>');
$obj->addChild("fred");
$obj->fred = 'Flintstone';

echo htmlentities( $obj->asXml() );
