Hi Johann,

I could compile your example without problems after making Doris'  

\usepackage{pst-tree} %% <----- load ps-tree

\def\psedge{\nccurve[angleB=180, nodesepB=3pt]}
\pstree[treemode=R, treesep=1.5, levelsep=3.5]{\Tr{root}}{\Tr{X} \Tr 
{Y} \Tr{Z}} %% <----- change bracket


Is it possible that you're using pdflatex instead of latex+dvips by  
accident? If you're using TexShop, check what engine is used, or try  
compiling it with latex+dvips from the command line.

Hope that helps,
