Crabapple Tree Identification and Advice
« on: November 05, 2017, 03:42:23 PM »
Hi all,

This is a bit of a two-parter. We have what I believe to be crabapple tree in the front of our yard in northern NJ. Unfortunately, it has suffered two fallen tree branches, splintered from the base in two separate storms. From the image of exposed trunk, do you think this tree is at the last leg of its life?

Now this tree has some sentimental value. First off, it's gorgeous. Beautifully pink in the spring and orange in the autumn. It really is the highlight looking out from the center window of the living room. Second, it's been here for as long as we've had the property. It's given us shade on the porch and has had some incredible birds perch in a dense urban neighborhood.

So in the event it needs to be removed due to being a hazard, we would very much love to know what this exact tree is.

Hard to tell from the pictures.  Identify and find some suitable rootstock and graft some cuttings and you can keep the exact tree (genetically) going for many years to come. Start now nothing happens very fast in the tree world


If it was easy everybody would be doing it

Even if you cut that tree down its roots will go back. The house that I grew up in had a 16" crab apple tree in the front yard, well the people that moved in cut it down and they had suckers growing anywhere the roots went. So with that say it will more then likely just grow back on its own.
