What are three ways a fossil can be destroyed after it has formed.

Seismic activity, weather, erosion, and mishandling are a couple. Need anymore let me know
Moisture, presure or heat
Ossils can be destroyed by erosion after they form. Rocks can be weathered and broken up by wind/water/ice, and the fossils can be broken up as well. 

Rocks that contain fossils could be metamorphosed. If mild, the fossils will be visible but stretched. If pressure and heat is intense enough, the fossils are obliterated. 

Also, many marine rocks (and any fossils they contain) are subducted at plate boundaries, and that will melt and destroy the rocks. 

Those would be the main ways that fossils get destroyed!

There ya go. 🙂

The three ways in which a fossil can be destroyed after it has been formed are the following methods; • Crushed – a method of pressing are using intense pressure in means of destroying its original form • Melted – a method use of having to change a particular substance’s formation or appearance from having it to be solid to liquid • Moved or eroded – a way of having to wear out its natural agents in means of destroying it
