I have a pecan tree that is about 6 years old that is growing about 5 degrees off vertical. I've tried to stake it several times but to little effect. Currently I have a ratchet strap trying to pull it straight (with little effect) but my question is:
Is there an effective and safe way to straighten an older tree?
I don't want to hurt the tree or waste my time if this is futile.
Most of the advice is talking about straightening new trees but this tree has a diameter of about 2.5 to 3 inches.
