Yes, definitely.

Prior to the tree conflict feature added in 1.6, I do not believe
there was ever a case where SVN even looked to see if a file had been
changed in the destination branch. Now, I believe there are cases
where it does check that in order to flag a tree conflict. Such as
when a folder is deleted by merge, but new files have been added to
the folder on the branch.
