As I wrote Thomas,

use the HPGL-plotter format as output format of DRAWTREE or DRAWGRAMM
and import the file (plotfile.out) into e.g. COREL DRAW 3 (this is the 
one we've tested) as a plotter file.

Since the plotter format is like a vector format, you can easily 
change the labels, the size and print it out in high quality.
