Hi there The tree in our front yard has been leaning for some time. I’m not sure the type of tree, but I would imagine that it is over 12 years old as that is the age of our house. The tree is leaning west and there is often a strong west wind during storms, so although it wasnt one storm, it could be the cumulative of several high winds that has cause it. My question is- is it possible to straighten out this tree? Would tieing it to a metal stake do anything? Is it possible to dig it up and try to even it out? I have attached a picture for reference. Thanks!!
