Storm blew tree part-way over
I can't decide if we should hope the tree will re-root better or if we should take it out. It's a flowering pear, about seven years old. Some type of tall, columnar variety. Very narrow for its height.
It blew over about 35 degrees. DH uprighted it w/ropes but subsequent wind/rain caused it to tilt again. The ropes are ugly so I was hoping DH could straighten the tree again and take them down. I like the shade we get from the tree, w/o it there is no shade on the grass for my boys to play in their wading pool this summer :-(
What would you do? Can a tree re-root and be sturdy?
