Hi Jon The Nerd,

Please take a look at the following section in our online help :"Populating with Data":
http://www.telerik.com/help/silverlight/radtreeview-populating-with-data-databinding-overview.html

Here you can find how to populate a RadTreeView using different binding strategy.
It seems like a good derision would be to choose Binding to XML.
Here is another example of how to use HierarchicalTemplate :

I hope that this will help you.

Kind regards,

FWIW - I would have loved a sample for this question. 
This is a very common SQL view result set that would be a great example to see in a treeview properly.
