Here are my suggestions:
1. Use single selection and handle the OnClientEntryAdding
event and cancel the event when a particular node is selected.
2. Use single selection and and allow every of the nodes to be selected and use custom field validator to check selected value of the control.
3. Use the approach in the following demo
and use checkboxes.
