Apple tree slanting: Removing it


By Jules99

South Yorkshire, United Kingdom Gb

I have a apple tree which has slanted because has it has grown bigger and it hasn't had the correct support (just a small stake when I planted it 12 year's ago). All the apples now fall into the next door neighbour's garden or in my own shrubs and last year I had a problem with rats coming to collect all the apples which I couldn't get. It also looks unsightly. How do I get rid of it please?, do I just contact someone who does odd gardening jobs or do I need a professional who deals with trees? or can I just cut right back and move it straight again and support it? Doubt if I can do this though.

Any advice please?
