The pilot reported that there was a crosswind which was aggravated by a line of trees along the side of the runway, making the air turbulent. On the landing approach, he encountered turbulence or a downdraft, resulting in the airplane landing hard on its nose gear. The nose gear broke off and the airplane nosed over on its back resulting in substantial damage. The pilot reported no preimpact mechanical malfunctions or failures with the airplane that would have precluded normal operations.
