Thank you for contacting Telerik support.
In order to have the scrollIntoView you have to have the height property of RadTreeView set to some value so that the internal scroll is visible. Please have in mind that the scrollIntoView is not working with the scroll of outer container.
Hope this will explain the issue. If you have further questions please don't hesitate to contact us again.
