SB 10.15.32

sa tam grhitva prapador
bhramayitvaika-panina
ciksepa trna-rajagre
bhramana-tyakta-jivitam

Translation: 
Lord Balarama seized Dhenuka by his hooves, whirled him about with one hand and threw him into the top of a palm tree. The violent wheeling motion killed the demon.

SB 10.15.33

tenahato maha-talo
vepamano brhac-chirah
parsva-stham kampayan bhagnah
sa canyam so ’pi caparam

Translation: 
Lord Balarama threw the dead body of Dhenukasura into the tallest palm tree in the forest, and when the dead demon landed in the treetop, the tree began shaking. The great palm tree, causing a tree by its side also to shake, broke under the weight of the demon. The neighboring tree caused yet another tree to shake, and this one struck yet another tree, which also began shaking. In this way many trees in the forest shook and broke.

Purport: 
Lord Balarama threw the demon Dhenuka so violently into the great palm tree that a chain reaction was unleashed, and many towering palm trees shook and then broke with a great crashing sound.
