Sorry for the disaster the past typhoon brought to your garden. At least, you and your family is safe.
Many years back in my younger years when I was still in the university (and when I had a bigger and more expensive collection of orchids), I experienced a similar misfortune you had with your garden. Altho mine was far worse as that was one of the typhoons that directly struck Manila and my garden was wide and open in my ancestral home. 75% of my plants were scattered and thrown in every unimaginable spot on our property including the neighbors' backyard. Some of my plants even found themselves on top of the roof! My expensive Vanda sanderiana's, some of which were given to me by well-known collectors and Philippine breeders that time were snapped in two right in the middle. Some Vandas which I had cared for so many years and had reached specimen size and height of almost 5 feet tall were stripped of all their leaves. The entire plastic roofing of my greenhouse was blown away and the terrace was strewn with broken clay pots everywhere and orchids lying on the ground covered with mud. It was very depressing for me and I felt helpless and so at a loss at Mother Nature's fury. For a while, I stopped growing orchids which lasted almost 3 months - but being the orchid nut that I am, I had to overcome my depression and be strong and resilient, so I slowly started all over again. Good that some of the plants that were victims of that typhoon were slowly recovering .... a couple others couldn't make it due to bacterial rot .... I just had to overcome the disaster and move forward ....
Be strong, my friend ..... you will endure and before you know it, your garden will be back to normal .... perhaps even better the next time around.
At least now, you can rearrange and tidy up your grow area to make it even better. That coconut tree is gone now so hopefully nothing else that massive will fall on your plants now.
I think there will be no trees will fall in my plants hehehe almost cleared out the sorroundings hehehe
