Come-along with truck didn't work. Any tree company recommendations to straighten tree would be helpful. Thx

Not sure a 4x4 truck with straps will work either. Arghh

It has been my experience, that you need to reverse the process. If this was hurricane related, then what typically happens, is that it rains and rains and rains. The ground becomes saturated and loose. Then the wind blows the tree over. In order to right the tree, you again need to flood the area before you try to right it. I did this to 40 mango trees last year, and need to start on about 20 this year.

Did you root prune it first? I have a bunch of leaning palms. Royals probably don't look good leaning and my one royal is not leaning. But, the others I'm thinking just let lean. Good luck with it.

because we drained our pool, one leaned east 10 degrees after Matthew. slack-rope winch for 3 mos, loads of new sand to cover the roots didnt help all year..  however IRMA blew it back straight up again !
