  • In this file there is html code for add folder icon and after that there code of display category name , after that you can add your html code for display icon, search in file "x-tree-node-icon" that code is for display folder icon so you can start from there. Commented Jul 7, 2017 at 6:49

if you want to add a text with the category name you can just over ride the class Mage_Adminhtml_Block_Catalog_Category_Tree.

In that class you can find a function like

public function buildNodeName($node)
    $result = $this->escapeHtml($node->getName());
    if ($this->_withProductCount) {
         $result .= ' (' . $node->getProductCount() . ')';
    return $result;

You can just add your text like.

$result.='Your Text';
