If you have tilting trees lean a bit, you must’ve just ignored it without thinking twice about it. However, it is one of the signs of a decaying or weak foundation. The start of decaying could start from the branches or from the trunk. You may notice discoloration or peeling of the bark.

It involves connecting the nearby trees together and pulling the cables, adding slight pressure to fix the tilt. Fixing slanted trees is like fixing crooked teeth.

The installation of the system would be placed in areas that are weak so that it would have more stability. Cabling installed in the upper crown of a tree.
