Exporting to .obj or any other mesh format is pointless at this moment, because leaves are billboards. But this may be necessary in the future, as trees may be generated differently on different computers (depending on pseudo-random numbers generated inside). I will probably add possibility to save leaves definitions alone.
I promised SiENcE to fix something (update Ogre to newest version and provide a D3D renderer as an option as well as cleaning material scripts) during this weekend, but unfortunately I didn't have time. Will be done when I find some, I promise.

I suspect leaves as separate is the fastest i.e all Billboards are drawn in one batch.
Making all the tree trunks(barks) group into one static geometry would also be very fast. Only the leaves would probably animate.
