A rope come-along is perfect for this because of two things: 1, the winch doesn't fill up with cable and instead you can winch for 50 feet at once if you need to, and 2, the rope is somewhat stretchy so you can put real tension on a tree and it'll keep pulling as the tree starts to stumplopping.bars: Crank the handle of the come-along winch slowly and apply continuous pulling power on the winch line.
This power will transfer to the connection made at the butt end of the tree, causing the leaner to move toward the anchor tree. Continue operating the winch until the leaner falls to the ground.
