Add leaves and fruit, but don't cut the branches

On a Windows share with a complex file tree, is there any way to lock down the tree so that folders can be added by all, but the directory structure itself can't be changed?

People keep dragging folders or whole sections of a directory tree on a network file server and leaving them inside another location on the tree; so the HR folder and its subfolders suddenly end up inside the Accounting section. (No one admits to moving them, of course.)

Users need to be able to create their own subfolders, and add documents and move them around throughout the tree; but I'm trying to find a way to allow this while also blocking the ability to move folders from one location in the tree to another, or otherwise make change the directory structure.

I'm not coming up with anything; is there something obvious I've missed?
