Yes, this seems to work.  My previous message 
about hard coding the path seems to have arisen 
out of a copy of tree-dvips that had an explicit 
path included.  This is true of many of the 
versions available on individual linguists' web 
pages.  So depending on where you got the 
package, you might need to check the actual 
tree-dvips.sty file itself.

Actually it does work perfectly.  I use it all 
the time.  BUT, the version on ctan is an older 
version than the one that I use, so I would 
recommend the newer version. (v. 0.91, 1995) For 
some reason I can't find a good link to it on the 
web, however, so here is a version on my web
