    i have a four year old plum tree that is so loaded that it is leaning to the left. it is loaded. i think a damson plum. the other plum tree has two plums. gonna have to drive some posts and stabilize it.

    my brother has a bumper crop of plums. i am not sure of the variety, but he decided to thin them out to prevent tree damage.

    i drove a post about 3 feet away. had my wife lean it back. tied it to the post with an old hose and filled in the gap. looks good.
