Leaning young tree
I'm after some advice on a leaning tree please.
a couple of months ago I bought a young amelanchier from a nursery and it was delivered a couple of weeks later. When it was delivered it had a slight lean but i thought it would correct quickly if I staked it and put the lean facing away away from the sun. Annoyingly the predominant wind is the same direction as the lean so it's constantly being excaserbated.
ive had to physically pull the tree towards the stake for it to be straight. My question is, when I remove the stake in a year, will it simply revert to it's lean? am I better off digging it up and trying to replant it straighter?
any help appreciated.
