Are 'botak' trees weaker than trees with leaves?

 Are 'botak' trees weaker than trees with leaves?
STOMPer Trekker noticed these 'botak' trees and wonders if they are weaker and more prone to collapsing during rainstorms.

He says:

"These pictures were taken near the junction of Jurong West Ave 2 and Jurong West Ave 3.

"This tree is devoid of leaves and only ferns are growing on the trunk and branches.

"If there is a rainstorm this tree might collapse and this poses a danger to pedestrians.

"This vehicle registration number plate was found hanging on a tree and a lorry was parked nearby. I wonder how it got there."
