VB.net/ASP.net building Organizational Hierarchy in TreeView with Department selection


I store the hierarchical organizational data for a company in a table shown in the image below.
I use a recursive method to add the nodes based on the "node address" column.
I need to add in functionality to exclude certain departments. This will interfere with my code in general and make my build disjointed. Can anyone suggest a better way to do this. Thanks

Are the departments you need to exclude at the lowest level of the heirarchy or part of a branch in the tree, consider excluding them when you retrieve your data.
Bob LearnedCommented:
ASP.NET has a way to bind the TreeView to a data source that supports hierarchical data.
