The geological history of Florida is the story of the erosion and replenishment of shifting sand as the state is really just a huge, ancient sand bar.  An inevitable part of that erosion and shift is the demise of trees, some quite old, that probably intended to live much longer than they did. So the trees you find lying on the sand lived quite nearby and met their end locally.  Here is a photograph of rather young trees that will topple on the beach relatively soon.  (P67, 135mm lens, Delta 100 film)
