Few ornamental trees offer the variety of tree shapes, sizes, flower colors and ornamental fruit as flowering crabapples.
Crab apples are the most popular of the spring-flowering trees here in Mid-Michigan where cold winters and heavy, clay soil prevents other spring bloomers from performing well.
Best known for their spectacular spring color, crab apple trees add interesting color and texture to the landscape all four seasons. The colorful winter fruit is not only a beauiful sight against the snowy landscape, but it is a food source for birds.
Tree height may be from 6′ – 50′ with most in the 15′ to 25′ range. The varieties vary from weeping, spreading, columnar, vase-shaped to pyramidal which allows many opportunities for use in landscapes.
Spring is an ideal time to add crabapple trees to your landscape. Call the experts at Smith Tree and Landscape to arrange for a consultation at 517 321-3553.
