Plum tree bending one way - how fo fix it? Pix inside

Hi guys

My plum tree of 3 years, has bent slightly right ways, I believe this is probably the way the branches have grown, I have pruned it as best as I can. The stake has also become loose. My question is how do I straighten the tree back, the tree doesn’t seem loose. The wind direction is usually from left side. Can I remove the stake and re-position it?

Thanks

At just three years old your tree should pull over to a more upright position if you want to.
Put a strong stake on the side you are pulling to and then you can pull the tree gently to a better position. Be careful that you do not snap major roots as you do.....but it’s now or never I suspect.
