Set your graphics to fancy and the trees wont hurt you. Fancy graphics also makes harvesting large trees easier since you can see the branches through the leaves.

(Fancy graphics also means that mobs wont spawn on trees... but only if *everyone* is on fancy.)

If lighting is going to damage structures hopefully we also get the ability to build lighting rods, i.e. iron block on top of a stone pillar. (Iron pillar? That's a lot of iron...)
