Rox uses a different way. As far as I know the "tree view" is absent.
In some respects it is more like the "Nautilus spatial" method, where each
directory can be a separate window. The difference is that rox does not
open new windows *by default* for a clicked directory.
For example, a "middle click" in rox opens a new directory in a new
window - which is convenient for "drag and drop". A normal left click
opens in the same window.
There are lots of configurable options - exploring the right-click menu is
a good start. One thing that some people find annoying is that rox does
not set default apps to open files - it allows you to enter your own
preference (for example, I am fond of the "feh" image program, and set
it to open images like jpg and png). I like this, some people don't
is quite flexible - for example, you can create a menu of apps to choose
from to open a directory or file, accessible from "right click", and so on.
There are also useful key combinations, including a "mini command
line" ( Shift + 1 - the "!" key on a US-style keyboard).
Rox repays a bit of time taken to learn its possibilities - once you have
it set for your preferred methods, the configuration can be found in
~/.config/rox.sourceforge.net/ , so reinstalls or moves to another machine
etc. can replicate your preferred settings by backing up and replacing
