Birch tree not growing straight
My young birch tree had some rapid growth this summer and started to lean over to one side. I’ve added some support at the bottom which straightened it in the lower half. But now the top half started bending. Any advice please?

With larger trees, you can often stake them and tie ropes to the top of the tree temporarily. This can put tension on the side of the tree that is bent or leaning, which will help correct the issue.
