Welcome to the JavaRanch, Amit! We'd prefer that you employ year real last name on your displayname, however. See

There are 2 ways I could interpret your question.

If you are asking specifically about GUI tree controls, there are no tree controls in the core JSF. However a number of extensions to JSF exist that do implement tree controls as well as other popular GUI control types not supported by basic HTML.

If you are asking about the JSF Component Tree object, that's pretty much a straightforward compilation of the XML that defined the View being processed.
