I like the general suggestion, but 'c' made me immediately think 'copy',
which could be the right to copy the tree to somewhere else.

Thus, I suggest 'a' for 'add', the right to add children (including their subtrees).

If this right is non-recursive, people may add files, directories or whole trees (in the same transaction), but not modify them later.
