Will my Pine Tree Fall
I have what I believe is a white pine, about 100 feet tall. It is leaning about 15-20 degrees, and has been doing so for a long time. The trunk, about 2-1/2 feet diameter, comes out of the ground fairly straight up, but beginning about 15-20 feet up starts to bend. This is probably due to a tall sycamore that used to be nearby, not allowing this tree to grow straight.
How could I tell if this tree will fall? Although it lost at least a dozen large limbs during the heavy snowstorms this winter it seems healthy. Even top leaves are a rich green color. It must be pretty old? Does that mean it could just die soon and could topple? This is in suburban street and it could take out power lines, cars, and people if it fell.
