Please examine the Load on Demand
functionality of the RadTreeList. It allows child nodes to be added on the fly as parent nodes are expanded. This mode is useful when you need to fill sub nodes only when the parent node is expanded or the data source contains thousands of records.
I hope this helps.
All the best,
the Telerik team
