Wisconsin
More than 25 years ago I moved a 25' white pine that had been tipped over for some time, it survived but ten years later the seedling next to it was taller, and still it doesn't look like it has grown more than a few feet taller, it has gotten thicker. Maybe two years ago a storm blew through Wisconsin Rapids, huge white pines were tipping farther than I thought possible, but I didn't see a single pine down. Spruce and Maple down everywhere, something about the spruce they just tipped over with the root ball intact. I'd pull them up with a wide padded strap, then anchor and I bet they survive, but don't grow much more, which is probably best as they're as nice as they'll get, and give you twenty years to get some replacements growing.
