Crabapple Leaves Seem Sad And Curly

Question From: S. Blomberg - Chatsworth, Georgia, United States
Q: We planted a Crabapple in the ground after it Bloomed absolutely beautiful. It has green leafs and green little Buds (Apple?). But leafs are looking sad and Curley. Can't visibly see any pests. We had heat and lots of rain. Should I treat? And if so with what?

A: Take cuttings of the effected leaves to a good independent garden center or nursery that sells these plants for an accurate ID and control. If the tree is of particular value get an onsite ID from a certified arborist. To find one in your area go to and enter your zip code. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy
