This weekend: straightening up a 15' tall tulip poplar
One of our trees, a youngish tulip poplar, got blown over slightly in that big August windstorm. Recently it has started tipping even more, so I've gotta try and fix it this weekend. It's at least 10 degrees out of plumb. I tried straightening it by hand, but it wouldn't budge (the trunk is at least an 8" caliper).
The plan is to use our farm tractor pull it upright, once I've dug out around the root ball a bit. If that works, we'll stake it thoroughly and hope for the best.
Should be an adventure, wish me luck!
