Place a log in the leaves.  If a leaf is connected to a log it wont decay.

Stuff happens.  Don't be discouraged.

Do leaves have to be connected directly to the log in order to stop it decaying:
:SSSS:  :(
...or can you string them along:
:SSSS:  :Spider:  :Zombie:
...otherwise trees themselves would decay down to just one layer?

Connected might be the wrong word. It doesn't have to be like this:
:log:  :(

According to the MinecraftWiki:

Quote

In Beta, leaves decay according to a simple formula: leaf blocks decay unless they are within 4 blocks of a log block, and connected to the log by other leaf blocks.
:log:  :Spider:  :Zombie:  :SSSS:  :SSSS:

should be fine. Not sure what'll happen to something like
:SSSS:  :Lava:  :VV:  :Leaves:  :Leaves:
:log:  :Leaves:  :Leaves:  :Leaves:  :Leaves:
though.

Since I've provided you with the information that there's a MinecraftWiki, please use it next time you have a question. Word of caution: I've seen much wrong information on the wiki. You'll have to try things out.
This signature is now 20% cooler. That's what I'm counting on.

Leaves decay unless they're connected to a log. I believe connected means five blocks away at maximum. Like this.

:log:  :(  :Spider:  :Zombie:  :SSSS:  :SSSS:

or

:log:  :SSSS:  :Lava:  []  []
[]  []  :VV:  :Leaves:  :Leaves:

or

[]  []  []  :Leaves:
[]  []  :Leaves:  :Leaves:
:Logs^:  :Leaves:  :log: []

IIRC, that's how it goes.

There should be a LMGTFY (Let Me Google That For You) for the MineCraft wiki

The only thing I can think of is to edit your texture pack so you're replacing the texture for one material with that of leaves (white wool, maybe?). That way you can place a load of "white wool" and it'll look like a leaves block

That won't work in multiplayer, and if I recall, only textures that are transparent can be retextured with transparency, dirt and such cannot.
I do stuff.
