I have a crabapple tree (I think). It blooms white in spring and it does not ever have any fruit produced. That's not my concern as much as this summer it just seems to be sick looking. Brown spots on the leaves and much of the tree does not have leaves on it. Who can I call to see if there is something I can do to "save" this tree?

Carver County Minnesota

Thank you for your question.

You can find a certified arborist in your area through the International Society of Aboriculture: http://www.isa-arbor.com/findanarborist/arboristsearch.aspx

We also have a good Extension publication on how to hire an arborist that may help you choose a professional: http://www.extension.umn.edu/garden/yard-garden/trees-shrubs/how-to-hire-a-professional-arborist/

Best of luck and thanks for contacting Ask an Expert.
