I would like to know if it is possible to export cura tree support structures  as an stl (using any software) or somehow put it to the 3d program for further editing? 

Thank you

It isn't.

 

Supports are only created as 2d lines per layer, not as 3d geometry.

    Search the net  for g-code  to stl conversion. There are mentions of  a  program called Voxeliser that might do what you want. I havnt tried it. 
    Look at this inspiring Youtube-video  of a Blender import of  g-code for inspiration,  perhaps.


    Good luck
