I would suggest you to take a look at the TreeView Drag and Drop demo
, which shows how a tree node may be transferred to another tree. In contrast, for copying a tree node without removing it from the source Kendo UI TreeView, I would suggest you to take a look at the approach and live demo suggested in the following forum thread. And as far as the MVC wrapper of the TreeView is concerned, you may take a look at the following forum thread solution.
I hope that the above guidelines will help you achieve the desired behavior.
