I want to change the icon of my add-in:

To do this, I indicate my new image (Tree32.png) in the Config.daml:

<AddInInfo id="{06b629d0-c299-4e09-9149-09bfbc3bd161}" version="0.0.16" desktopVersion="2.8">
    <Name>WaldstrassenApp_V0.0.16</Name>
    ...
    <Image>Images\Tree32.png</Image>
    <Subject>Framework</Subject>   
  </AddInInfo>

I also make sure to set the Build Action of "Tree32.png" to AddInContent. However, the icon of my add-in doesn't change.

I can't duplicate your issue.   Your icon .Png file is in the 'Images' folder and the build action for the icon file is set to 'AddInContent'?  You can also verify that your image file is in the .esriaddinx output file by renaming the file to have a .zip file extension and then open the .zip file.   You should see the Images folder with the icon file.

I tried with Tree.png and got this:

Thank you Wolf. I made the wrong assumption. I thought that I can change the icon of the add-in file (.esriaddinx). But actually, I can only change the icon of the add-in in the Add-In Manager:
