It is said that windthrow is caused by trees growing so fast that the roots do 
not anchor them sufficiently when the weather gets wet and so they blow over.

If a low nitrogen, high K fertilizer were used, it should inhibit the growth 
in height but stimulate the root development.
Is this true?
Would this work?
