Hello Brian Nguyen,
Yes, you are correct. The PanelBar contains a ScrollViewer in its template and its panel acts as StackPanel (which does not limit the height of its children even if it exceeds its own height).
Is setting a (Max)Height on the TreeView an option for you? Alternatively you need to disable the vertical scrolling in the PanelBar.
