What do you base this assertion on?  Sequoias regularly fall over in
mere thunderstorm winds, so it seems quite reasonable to assume they'd
be felled by sauropods weighing dozens of tons.  Heck, an elephant or
even a bear can knock over small trees on occasion, and they're a
heckuva lot smaller than a Brachiosaur!
