A lot of times the soil in a forest is in a thin layer on top of limestone. The roots of the tree can only reach a certain depth. The tree continues to grow and add mass until its weight becomes too great for the roots to support. Usually, if the tree is the largest in the forest, it will also be the largest wind catcher therefore being similar to a sail on a ship.

What effects do tornadoes have on Earth?

Tornadoes will cause many trees to be uprooted and killed. Thus, this contributes to global warming as the trees take in carbon and dioxide and gives out oxygen during photosynthesis. The ecosystem will become imbalanced as the animal population would most likely be wiped out. People will also be killed. Dirt and debris from the damaged and collapsed infrastructures and buildings will circulate in the environment, resulting in pollution.

Even in weak tornado, trees may lose branches or be uprooted. In stronger tornadoes many trees may be snapped or uprooted while some smaller plants are flattened. Violent tornadoes can rip plants out of the ground and creat swaths of complete deforestation. In the most extreme cases, all vegetation may be removed. Even grass can be scoured from the ground.
