I have organised a batch of photos by tagging them in Lightroom Classic and I'd like to move them into an empty folder. The problem is that the folder is not showing up in the file tree, presumably because I haven't imported anything from that folder. Is there a way I can make empty folders appear in the file tree?

Welcome to the forum. Your observation is correct. But there is a solution. In the folder panel, click on the plus (+) in the folder panel header. Choose "Add Folder" in the context menu and in the dialog that opens, navigate to your folder and select it.
