I've seen large tall trees where lightning has favored striking one lower limb rather than hitting the top of the tree. If a structure is in a tree and it has a greater positive charge than the tree which surrounds it, the lightning will move towards the structure and the only thing that might divert it is if the lightning happens to touch a limb first and grounds to the tree. So it would be like the tree limbs are serving as lightning rods.
