The home we bought a year ago has a leaning tree that is about 18-ft tall. Sorry, I don't know what kind it is but can find out if needed. Q: Is there any way to get the tree to be straight or upright? I thought of tying a rope around it but at this point I don't think staking it will help. Maybe digging it up and replanting is our only option? How about cutting its leaves or that of nearby trees to encourage growth on the other side? Any tips, much appreciated.
