Imitate natural disturbances by pushing over trees

Background information and definitions
Many forests in human-dominated landscapes are heavily managed reducing the likelihood of impacts from natural disturbances such as being blown over by strong winds or damage by large herbivores (which are often absent). Pushing or pulling over trees may imitate some of these mechanical disturbances and create a more heterogeneous environment, which may increase species diversity.
