In the french white dwarf (I expect it is in the other WDs as well) they have a guide to making spore chimneys that look....reasonable.
From a distance.

And rather cheap as well.

As others have mentioned, WD has run a series of articles detailing how to make chimneys as well as pools. Have you checked Black Gobbo? I haven't looked there recently but I wouldn't be surprised if they had a couple articles as well. Finally, there's always the possibility of just using good old jungle trees and plants. I picked up a couple of nice plants at a PetsMart, glued them to flying bases and then flocked and painted the bases. Presto! Instant jungle that looks great. My advice don't buy the GW plants. They're simply aquarium plants that have been repackaged and then the price tripled. If you can get a hold of some of the GW jungle trees though (the ones that come in many box sets), they look great if properly painted and based - they blend right in with the plants. 8)

As well as other cool projects...
Also, you can buy aquarium plants and make them wierd colors - during a 'Nid invasion they warp and alter local plant life, so oyu could use something like that as an Area Terrain forest...
