is there a point to a string tree
As far as I know it is to even the tension over the nut between strings. Without it, the down force would be less on the D and G strings making it possible for those strings to jump out of the nut when played hard.
String trees are usually only on basses with more than two tuning machines to one side of the headstock. Fender and MM are examples. Basses with 2x2 tuners don't have them.
