Q.Can you straighten a large tree? And how do you do it?
I have a number of pine trees in my property that are leaning. They are very tall and large. How do I straighten them? Thank you

Well, you certainly can see the prevailing wind direction. Your trees are mature enough that you need a professional arborist for help. Young trees can be straightened with stakes and cables, but I think your trees are too old. Also, if the leaning is from strong winds and not loose soil, you may be better off moving the trees to a less windy location.
