Second Luk-Cha, you can find simple wood trees in Muji. I got a pair after listening to luk-cha. only $140 for the bigger kind.
There are also many shoe stores in Hong Kong which sell wood trees, albeit slightly expensive HKD$400+.
I have seen wood trees in "Lloyds" in Times square ($380), Lane Crawford, the big chain shoe soleing/key duplicating store which are all around HK (wooden $400+)
