But, if there is corruption within the tree, the roots are weakened, and a mild breeze may blow down the tree.Hickory, conifer, oak, pine and walnut trees have taproots. The majority of trees do not have this type of root.

Trees tend to develop taproots when they are in soil that is well-drained and sandy. However, the tree still has to be prone to developing this type of root system. For example, ash, maple and cottonwood trees are not likely to.
