The Tree Tag makes it possible to show a piece of the MMBase cloud generically. This tag never works alone. Firstly, it will try to find a surrounding `treecontainer' tag, which defines the `starting query' and other the properties of this tree. If there is no surrounding tree-container tag, then it can also use one of the other node list containers (relatednodescontainer and listnodescontainer) to define the `starting' query. If also that does not succeed then it will start looking for any surrounding node-provider (such as relatednodes, listnodes and node) and will use the provided node as a base for the starting query of the tree.
If you want to define the surrounding node-provider with a container, then you can use the 'node' attribute to enforce it to use the node-provider and not it's container.(since: MMBase-1.7)
