Young Italian Cypress Has Splayed

I have some new Italian Cypress that arrived from the nursery with some splaying. Is the best treatment for this just to tie the splaying branches into a vertical position and let them grow stiffer in the correct position? Does it matter if I use a twine that will break on its own versus something like a plastic cable tie / zip tie strap that will not come off on its own?

Is this problem typically caused at this young age by overwatering?
