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.
