Bill's ref is: The Body language of trees, Mattheck & Breloer, pub by the 
Stationary Office, 2006; pp83- et seq - gives a lot of research detail on 
rootplate radius/ stem radius for stability - could be quite useful for you

Hi Michael

I remember (not so much these days!) about 20 years, or so, ago Claus 
Mattheck came up with calculation for minimum rootplate diameter in relation 
to stem size to maintain the structural integrity with regards to wind-throw.

I don’t have my books to hand, but it might be a pointer in the right 
direction…

Regards,

Bill
