A newbie question: it seems that mongo does not by default describe a hierarchical structure. So if i were using something like xpath in xml, i could find the parents of a giving node. Am i correct in thinking that you need to 'build-in' tree-like relationships (with say 'parent') to be able to do that?

In MongoDB you can use "categories" to automatically implement this sort of behavior. See:
