Some fellows on the interwebs have this to say.

Quote:
 "Wind" is basically dispersed particles of mater exerting a force upon a body, more often than not a Gas, however this is not always the case, solar wind or electrostatic winds operate perfectly well in the absence of Air
Quote:
 The density of the solar wind is about 3,000,000 particles per cubic meter. Compare this to the density of air at sea level, 7 x 10^26 particles per cubic meter. This means that the air around you now has 200,000,000,000,000,000,000 times more particles per given volume than interplanetary space. So it pretty safe to say that you would not be able to feel the solar wind.

The trees would die once pulled from their roots.

Not at all, they would die because they need carbon dioxide.

couldn't you use an airtight feeding system with the tree itself on the outside? and then supply space with oxygen

In space, there is the solar wind although it is charged particles, not moving air.
