Sapling, post and guard wire pushed over

Last night (Feb 20) a car or person has slightly tipped a newish sapling, it’s post and guard rail. Wet soil I guess. All now at rakish angle. it is on the crescent grass, the north most tree. I’m concerned would damage roots as not firmly entrenched and pole wobbles. It does not lean over road and does not interfere with pavement. (Though the sub category lacks an other) So more about trees long term survival. Thanks.

  • Just reporting this too. Not sure if a person or car is responsible- we have the same issue with a tree in the front garden where the wind has unsteadied the roots and needs stalking with a wooden stake and tie.

  • The weight of the post is pulling on the tree - is it possible this will be fixed before the tree gives up?
