Don't blame nature for your failure to prepare your root-bed for the tree.

"I wonder if this is a product of cheap McMansion craftsmanship. Tree roots can't be that weak."
EXACTLY! They are not. Obviously there was no hole preparation at all. A disaster waiting to happen. A fly by night job that is likely untraceable today.

I don't think this has as much to do with mother nature as it does with human stupidity.

krisbrown-"are tree roots not deeper than a foot or two?"

Depends on the tree. Having lived through quite a few hurricanes I can tell you this:
Oak and Pecan trees have very shallow, but spread out, roots. They tend to fall over like this tree during hurricanes.
Pine trees, on the other hand, have a very deep tap-root. If the tree is 100' tall, the tap-root will be 50' deep. These trees tend to snap in the middle during a hurricane.

This was taken in my neck of the woods after Hurricane Frederic in 1979.

Other reason might be the tree having been moved from somewhere else and too many roots have been cut off.

Anyhow, both reasons are based on a poor gardener.

In case the underground (below the 20 cm of top soil) is very hard and poor quality, the roots won't grow into it. The roots seem to have grown only in the top soil, which was not strong enough to hold the tree in case of windy weather.

That is what happens when you only put down a small amount of top soil on sandy dirt. you know if they pushed it, it probably would fit right back in hahaha
