I did the same for the Departments in HR Modules. I hope this piece of code will help you:

<record id="department_category_tree_view" model="ir.ui.view">
            <field name="name">department.category.tree</field>
            <field name="model">hr.department</field>
            <field name="field_parent">child_ids</field>#use this to show their childs
            <field name="arch" type="xml">
                <tree string="Department Categories">
                    <field name="name" />
