The Cactus Doctor can straighten saguaro cactus that no one else can straighten. He can go where no one else can go! Thanks to new procedures, The Cactus Doctor and his crew can save your saguaro! Watch him work his *magic* and save your saguaro!

If your saguaro cactus is beginning to lean, do not lose hope for there are ways to remedy the problem. The Cactus Doctor and his crew are highly trained professionals who specialize in straightening leaning saguaros that are located in the most difficult of places - near pools, cliffs, power lines and areas that cannot be reached by cranes and cradle trucks!

You ask "What causes saguaros to lean?" Well, there are three main causes for your saguaro cactus to lean:

  1. your saguaro cactus has bacteria necrosis at the base
  2. the balance of your saguaro cactus is offset by having too many heavy limbs on one side
  3. there is a water source near your saguaro which is loosening the soil around the base

Most saguaros that are less than 25ft tall can be straightened manually but larger ones with several arms must be straightened by either a cradle truck or by crane. When you first notice your saguaro beginning to lean you should take action immediately so it does not eventually fall and destroy property or injure any bystanders.

Warning: be very careful hiring common landscapers to straighten your leaning saguaros - if they are not certified cacti horticulturists, they can do more harm and damage than good! One bad move can cause your saguaro to topple over! One bad move can cause more damage and even make way for disease! Call the professionals at The Cactus Doctor (602-465-0566)! The Cactus Doctor is a certified cacti horticulturist!
