Default Suggestion

Like most things you will find information readily available on the internet. I make it a habit of finding several sources to see what agrees what doesn't and perhaps a solution to the problem that others would not have thought of.

First of all there are several different varieties. The roots as you have noticed unfortunately are minimal and can be caused to rot. What I read says you should not run nails through the plant to secure it.

Seems you need to build a wooden frame and nail the frame to the tree. I would use stainless steel nails as brass will surely kill the tree and plain steel nails will quickly rust out. For the frame, I would use cedar rather than pressure treat.

The plant may have fallen due to root rot or simply an impact when you had work done on the tree.
