species of trees with deep and ramified root systems and strong trunks, which withstand storms and hurricanes well and are not susceptible to windfall. Some wind-resistant species are oak, Siberian stone pine, eucalyptus, and sequoia.
The wind resistance of trees is connected with the conditions of growth. Deeper and more ramified root systems develop on deep, relatively friable, and well-drained soil, in conditions of a deep water table, and among sparsely standing young trees; the roots ramify near the surface on fine pebbly soil, heavy swampy soil, or sandy soil with a high water table, as well as in cases of shallowly positioned permanently frozen rock. Windbreak margins also raise wind resistance.
