Correction of Crooked Leader
I was wondering if anyone had advice on how to fix this Princeton Elm that was allowed to lean.
My neighbor purchased this as a container last spring and it has always had this shape (looks like the nursery never bothered to help it grow upright). It was in a 10 Gallon Container.
There is a somewhat clear leader but it is at quite an angle leaning to the right in this picture.
Should he cut it back and try to establish/train a new leader or would it be possible to stake and pull the leader back over another growing season?
Thanks for any help or suggestions!
