You can easily construct a tree made of TreeNode objects yourself by calling Ftp object's GetList method repeatedly. Just use a method like this one:

    public static TreeNode GetListTree(Ftp ftp, string folder)
        // create a tree node
        TreeNode node = new TreeNode(folder);

        // save current folder
        string originalFolder = ftp.GetCurrentDirectory();

        // change current directory to the next folder

        // get list of files in the current folder
        FtpList list = ftp.GetList();

        // iterate through the list of files
        foreach (FtpItem item in list)
            TreeNode subNode;
            if (item.IsDirectory)
                // if an item is a directory, construct
                // a tree for it recursively
                subNode = GetListTree(ftp, item.Name);
                // if an item is not a directory,
                // just add it to the tree
                subNode = new TreeNode(item.Name);

            // add the subnode to current node's nodes

        // go back to the original folder

        return node;

Call this on the folder you wish to appear in the TreeView and add the result to TreeView's Nodes collection.

If I want to add a key for each node that is a directory node, how can I do that?

I'm not quite sure what you mean by 'key' in this context, and where would you like to add it. Could you please explain?
