Thanks for getting back to me with a definitive answer. This is
straightforward to do in Tk or Swing, so I had hoped wxWindows would
provide something comparable.
The reason I wanted this was simply that I have a rather small window
(150x300) displaying a tree and the scrollbars take up an absurd amount of
space (relatively speaking) when they get displayed. 1/3 the thickness
would have done quite well for me here...

There is no way to do this in wxPerl because there is no way to do it
in wxWindows because in general underlying toolkits don't provide such
functions (AFAIK). Out of curiosity: why do you want to change
the width of Wx::TreeCtrl's scrollbars?
