It seems like using tree-dvips with pdflatex is not very easy. It has been documented in various places in the web.

I wouldn't mind using latex and then convert to PDF, but I am actually interested in using some options in my .tex file which are available only to pdflatex.

Is there a way to make tree-dvips and pdflatex agree?

What happens right now is that my code compiles, but the elements which are supposed to be printed by tree-dvips commands do not appear.

    I know this is not the answer you want, but there are many alternatives to tree-dvips which are compatible with pdflatex, most notably TikZ (and e.g. tikz-qtree). Do you have any particular reason for wanting to use tree-dvips? What kind of trees do you need to make? – Alan Munn Oct 25 '12 at 23:12
  • As Alan says, there are alternatives to tree-dvips. Without some reasoning, it's hard to see why you want to go down this route: that makes the question too localized to me. – Joseph Wright Nov 20 '12 at 19:57
