I purchased my first house a couple months ago when it was VERY dry. There were two young trees in the front that had not been taken care of.
I pruned them, put in a couple fertilizer spikes, and started watering them daily. One of the trees was so bent over that I put a support rod in it - it was so bad that the top of the tree was nearly pointing down.
Two months later, they both look much
better, but the bent over top did not correct itself since I could not reach it with the support rod.
Here's a picture of what it looks like now. It still looks bad, but it's much better than two months ago.
I don't want it growing like this forever. What do I do?
If it was growing straight, the top would be a good 12ft tall. Do I add another support rod all the way to the top??
Stakes aren't really an option, because the trunk is so wobbly.
