I wouldn't write a template that calls itself recursively that many
times, unless I was sure that the implementation is tail-recursive and
that I am writing a tail-recursive template.

Said another way, try and traverse the document using matching (not
named) templates and apply-templates, along with modes if needed.

Based on your scarce snippet, you could try something like this:

  <xsl:template match="ebene">
    <xsl:if test="text() != preceding-sibling::ebene[1]/text()">
      <!-- we are looking at the first "ebene" of its kind:
           output all the "ebene" with that value inside a "baum" -->
      <baum ebene="{text()}">
        <xsl:apply-templates select="../ebene[text() = current()/text()]"

  <xsl:template match="ebene" mode="output">

Of course, I don't have the slightest idea what baums and ebenes are, so
this is probably not what you need :-)
