Presuming that you use either a mac or a windows machine, one of the nicest,
mose user-friendly tree viewing programs is treeview.  It is available on the
web from:

http://taxonomy.zoology.gla.ac.uk/software.html#Tree viewing

It will allow you to carry out a great many different tree manipulations that
might serve to fulfill your requirements.

Hope this is of some assistance.
