I guess I don't understand the question.  Where did you get "ListModel"
from?  It isn't anywhere in the provided examples,  you attach a
ListStore to a TreeModel, and just have a TreeView with only one

Gtk.TreeView tree = new Gtk.TreeView ();
Gtk.ListStore musicListStore = new Gtk.ListStore (typeof (string), typeof (string));
tree.AppendColumn ("Artist", new Gtk.CellRendererText (), "text", 0);
tree.AppendColumn ("Title", new Gtk.CellRendererText (), "text", 1);
musicListStore.AppendValues ("Garbage", "Dog New Tricks");
tree.Model = musicListStore;  <-- Model is the the ListStore

ListStore & TreeStore should be able to be used pretty much
interchangeably AFAIK,  depending on the need of the application

Admittedly,  TreeView is an intimidating beast.
