Question From: c. rogers - Detroit, Michigan, United States
Q: my well established crabapple tree, this spring the blooms turned brown and the leaves are little, leaving a very thin look foliage on the bottom of the tree. the new growth is pretty good on top. We have had some very cool weather. I have had it sprayed 3 times for scrab, and deep rooted. the tree company came out and said it was ok, but why is it brown? looking?
I can't answer that question. As you read on Yardener.com. Crab apples are subject to all kinds of diseases. I would get back with the company that is caring for it and insist they send an arborist out to look at it again. Best Nancy
