I am certain this was done for performance reasons. When you are starting to push a significant number of physics effects, things just start grinding to a halt. For kicks, I made a tornado that had a 3200 radius, so it would pick everything up on the map I was testing (shore) and my frame rate dropped to about 1.4fps.
I guarantee we will see mods that change the deciduous type trees to have physics effects.
