In my fictional world, the planet has some very strong winds that regularly blow across large areas of land. In this world, however, very large, tall trees grow (the reason for the size of the tree is because each of them needs to be able to grow fruits which are large enough for humans to fit in - the blowing of the winds moves the fruit, and humans can sneak inside the hollow fruit in order to achieve transportation).
The problem is that a larger, taller tree would be disadvantaged in such a windy environment, due to the difficulty in remaining sturdy and stable and not snapping - as such, most trees wouldn't normally grow to be this tall. Hence, my question is why would a tree grow to such heights when it is illogical to do so normally?
As a note, the trees grew to this size naturally - they were not specially hand-picked, modified and bred by humans to be this large.
