I love the new treeman. He really should be a large model and a large target.
I was worried some time ago before the book came out what would come of my old treemen. I almost think the treekin are a way of rectifying that situation.
I use 3 different old treeman models as my 3 treekin. Personally, I don't even like the new treekin models anyway.
At any rate I got a lot of strange looks when I used them as treekin. I got a lot of 'hey you can't use 3 treemen' comments and other such things.
I wouldn't allow myself to use them as treemen, wrong base size and they're too small.
I think they're wysiwyg to treekin. They certainly look a lot more intimidating too.
As long as it's clear to your opponent and they're on the correct base size, I don't see the problem. I don't really agree with you about the models, since I thought the old treemen were hideous, but it's your call to make.
In friendly games, I'd just tell them to deal with it if they give you a hard time. Tournaments might be a different story, but I don't do tournaments - someone else can probably shed some more light on that aspect of it.
I would agree with Misanthrope09. As long as the base is the correct size and since they are both "trees" then it should be fine, just note to your opponent what is happening. It shouldn't be too hard since the treekin will be in a unit of 3 vs 1 monster going around the table.

It shouldn't be a problem as long as you highlight that the unit is treekin.
I agree that the current treekin models are a bit crappy. I recently saw some conversions where dryad parts have been combined to make a treekin. Looked pretty good.
Myself, I have two of the old treemen, I rebased them and use them as treemen. I'll be stuffed if I will fork out a small fortune to replace perfectly good, painted models. I'd rather spend the money on another project, like my Empire army or Imperial Guard army.
I didn't like the new treekin until I painted them. Then I thought they looked nice; plus, I spent enough working with them that I got to see all the work the sculptor did on the models.
And heck, as for the old models, I'd just as soon play with different colored pebbles. I don't like them one bit.
