1) angry particulates of gravity typically causing SHC Spontaneous Human Combustion
2) Microburst (in Florida Microburst occur fairly often knocking down Live Oak, other oak trees, pine trees, other trees, and cause some structural damages too.) Sometimes being upgraded or downgraded to or from an F0 tornado.
Yeah

Evergreen trees are waaay taller.
Grenade  Winds aimed aloft (at the tops) of, these massive beauties of nature, causing them to rock to-and-fro may have caused some of them to topple, where-as leverage aimed at the tops of, these massive beauties of nature, may hav snapped others at towards their bottoms.

Twisting of the trees, leads me to believe it may have been a tornado.

But I would not be able to refute a strong psychic event, in the realm of the paranormal.

Microburst are like tornadoes, occasionally a suspected tornado that may turn-out to be a Microburst. Sometimes a Microburst maybe upgraded to a F-zero or F-one tornado.

In my experience when I see them mentioned in the news it seems to depend on structural damages in terms of dollars and cents; Not so much if it's an actual tornado, As opposed to being a Microburst turnedinto being a tornado, due to costs of damages.

But, I can't actual discount any experiment or anything else, either with this one. Chuckle

Noticed that one of the people responding to the blog was a part of the clean up crew and said almost all of the trees were 2nd growth hemlock trees with shallow root roots.  (They came up with the full root ball).  

I did see that post about the shallow roots, @Pure Rock Fury though

Could be fungus but I do not believe shallow roots. If it was shallow roots the trees would not have snapped at the base. Someone did speculate that maybe there is an over-abundance of worms in the area. If worms are taking all the nutrients then the trees will be weak. They looked like health trees. IMO if it had been a micro-burst, the trees would have snapped higher up. It is a very odd incident.

Good thoughts and I agree about toppling from shallow roots rather
than snapping.

Interesting ideas and links, @wing-ed!
Being as strange as this is, it doesn't seem
much is out of the realm of possibility!
