Storms or age can uproot a tree and leave it sprawled across the forest floor. Sometimes referred to as “deadfall,” it is more specifically known as “blowdown” or “windthrow.” If the tree did not uproot, but instead was broken along its trunk it would be called “windsnap.” Large and tall trees are more susceptible to storms as their tremendous size and mass put enormous strain on their ability to stay anchored to the ground. Decaying trunks, fungus induced patches of dead tissue, or insect damage can weaken a tree enough to snap it when stressed by high winds.
