    After two years, the bark should have healed itself. As long as the bark is not girdled (removed all the way around the tree), the tree should be ok without the duct tape. If it is still leaning, you may want to put in a stake on the far side and use some rope to gently pull it back straight.

    You can start pruning it more severely to make it more shrub shaped than tree shaped.
