Just planted tree leaning into road

It's fantastic that a tree has been planted in this pit - thanks! But it's been planted it so it's leaning into the road, and on our narrow street this means it won't be long until it's hit by a van and broken. Is it possible to fix it so it's straight or leaning back from the road?
