I have a 17 foot pine tree that is tilted from wind. Any ideas how to get it straightened out and staked?

I was thinking of trying to pull it straight using my truck, then somehow get it staked if it holds reasonably straight. I ca't really make any progress pulling it by hand. Otherwise I guess I have to tear it out.

How about using a come along or winch to right it, then stake it in place with cables...

Healthy dose of Tannerite and of course post the video link when you are done!

Wet the ground down REAL good and then use the come alongs or a tow strap and your truck and then stake it with a tow strap that is wide and flat so you dont cut into the tree. And then place a large sandstone on the hollow side and fill it all in with lots of dirt packed in there.

If you want the tree live.

Bury an anchor point and connect a come-a-long. (USE a Strap)

crank on it....Tighten it up every three or four days. It will be a lonnnnnnnnng process, but eventually you will have a righted tree with a funny trunk.
