Don't stop the Thead directly. Be creative. :-)

e.g. register the time when entering the parsing process. Add a method
to your nodes that compares the starting time to the current time when
processing the node. Abort processing when currTime > startTime +

Or use a variant that involves a thread based trigger and just a flag
check in the node processing. As long as you don't allow custom Java
code to be executed and trust the code that you allow to be executed,
you will hit the various tree nodes on a pretty regular base.

Not an exact measurement but this not runtime accounting anyway.

As I said: You might impose a performance penalty on all the other
users. That's why you have to think about it.
