Perk points allocated to the tree cannot be undone, although the vampirism can be cured through Falion's ritual. Requiring a filled Black Soul Gem, the affliction is reversed but all perks remain. Aela the Huntress offers lycanthropy as a poultice for the vampirism. Unlocking perks in the werewolf skill tree also remain if the Dragonborn becomes a vampire again.
Each new perk requires a few more feedings than the last. A total of 156 people need to be fed upon to complete the entire tree.

Each new perk requires a few more feedings than the last. A total of 165 people need to be fed upon to complete the entire tree.
To speed up leveling, it is smart to take the Savage Feeding perk as soon as possible, since it will allow you to feed on animals as well (e.g. goats and foxes make easy targets).
For some reason, after killing and feeding on a target, you can cast the Soul Trap spell upon the body once you are out of Beast Form in order to trigger a second feeding on that corpse which contributes toward leveling the Werewolf perk tree. This speeds up the leveling for Werewolf perks quite a bit.
