The free trees are already in TGO format so you shouldn't need to convert them, there's a TGO reader option when you import a population. 

(from memory 'cos I'm at work and can't check)

add population -> tgo reader -> pick the tgo you want to use.

They work perfectly for me (so well I ended up buying the basic pack which come as .obj files)

I got the free ones too.  They were .tgo files.  You might want to try re-downloading them actually, it MIGHT be that you got some slightly corrupt ones - I do remember it being a fairly huge download, something around 90Mb if memory serves from the link

There were 5 different plants in there as I recall.

I believe this is a texturing issue. The free Xfrog plants are based on a much older version of the XFrog plants library and they do have some inherent issues with alpha and mapping. However part of the issue does lie within TG2's handling of OBJ files. This will be improved in an upcoming patch. In the meantime I believe the following thread covers your issue, including a possible workaround: http://forums.planetside.co.uk/index.php?topic=302.0
