It ain't gonna get bigger at all... in fact, bring it down to half its canopy size... as scapers we're suppose to have solutions to everyone's situation... you don't have to be a "Tree Guy" to determine if this variety can endure severe pruning, then just do it...
Straightening and pruning is no big deal... we deal with snow damage situation every year, that are a lot worse than this... if you kill it,,, you have to have a viable alternative to what your gonna do there... that is a lousy location for anything to grow so take advantage of something that does well in that location...
Not to mention time and expense for the client, for years of possible problems as a result of shade...

Maybe some one was smart enough to put that tree there because in that part of the country its the ONLY thing that wil lgrow in such a LOUSY environment...

If something is tearing at the base, you can stake down chicken wire and mulch it...
Now that I know that clay's texture(platelets) has nothing to do with water infiltration, percolation, or drainage
,,, I wonder what does...
