Wind Damaged Arborvitae

I have a row of seven Arborvitaes that are five years established. After hurricane Sandy, I noticed the middle Arborvitae has a severe lean due to the high winds. There is no other damage to the tree.

I figured springtime and after the winter thaw would be the best time to ask the question.

Is it possible to straighten the Arborvitae?

Re: Wind Damaged Arborvitae

Use 2 or 3 stakes to straighten the tree, but don't drive them into the main roots, then use ropes from the tree to the stakes.
