What do you think?

Should it come down or be uprighted?

If you need more pics, tell me.

Looks like a thumbs up to me. I have used these Duckbill anchors before. If you put all three on the one side, you can pull it with the first anchor until the turnbuckle bottoms out, then use the second anchor to pull it some more, then the third, and by then the first will be completely slack and you can reattach that turnbuckle and pull some more. You have to order them online, they will be at the store in a day or two and they will e-mail you. Don't buy the "special tool" for sinking the duckbill anchor, just buy a piece of rebar that fits the hole, 1/4 inch I think.They sell a larger size for $88 but I used these cheaper ones on a 8" Newport Plum and they had the power to pull it back upright and it has held for a year now.

I bet you guys have some much bigger stuff tipped over right now. I am upstate New York ad we had very little wind.

I think it has little to do with lawn mowing.

Are those power lines in the 3rd picture? Or just phone and cable? It looks like you could use as suggested above to correct the lean, but stay away from the power lines. I would suggest dropping it and replacing with something new in the early spring.

It's an arborvitae isn't it? Cut it down. No matter how many times you stake it up, it will always fall over in the first breeze that comes along.

It tough to get an over all view about how it fits into the landscape but if you right it, and keep it, be sure to soak those roots adequately as if you were planting a bareroot tree... perhaps prune it back now so the roots can catch up to the canopy and it isn't such a large windcatcher...
