We can manage graphs just fine now, but in some cases it's simply more 
obvious or more efficient or both to take advantage of the tree-nature 
of certain graphs and even to limit yourself to tree structures. Maybe 
one day someone will discover magic graph processing algorithms that 
outperform tree-based algorithms and are simpler to boot, but I kind of 
doubt it.
