Is the tree an leaning edge tree?

Often trees are removed for house building and the edge trees that are left can pose a high risk of hazard.  Before the construction these trees had the group protecting them from the wind.  These edge trees (arrows) have a substantial lean with children play areas as target.  These trees pose a high risk of hazard.






Below is a leaning tree.

Tree at left is not a tree that grew in a lean with a curved trunk.  It is leaning straight from the ground.  This is a high risk of hazard situation with the road being the target.
