For a given channel, is it possible to loop through the categories associated with its entries in alphabetical order, then nested-loop through the entries under that category? I'm trying to build a tree-view like template.

You can use the category_archive tag for this unless I've misunderstood your question: http://ellislab.com/expressionengine/user-guide/modules/channel/category_archive.html


Something like this with Stash should do the trick:

{exp:channel:entries channel="news"}
        {exp:stash:append_list name="item_{category_id}"}

{exp:channel:categories channel="news" style="linear"}
        {exp:stash:get_list name="item_{category_id}"}
