Add XPath = "/*/*" to your XmlDataSource to not display the root node.

im not using an XmlDataSource.

i have xml bound to the tree view that comes fromt eh SQL stored proc and it needs a top level node or else the XML wont be well formatted and SQL will error out.

I don't believe this is possible with the default TreeView control. You can hide the root element if you use a SiteMapDataSource. Your only other option is to find a custom TreeView that allows you to hide the root node.
