This tree. This poor tree. It's a crab apple, a borderline annoyance tree but if we end up with more fruit trees in the yard, it may prove to be beneficial....so I'm going to try and nudge it along. The amount of suckers growing on this tree is just overwhelming. I probably should have waited until late winter/spring to prune but it was in dire need of help. I pruned it back today and will keep my fingers crossed for it's return to grace.
