I have a small Prairie Fire Crabapple tree. I had just set it out this month. Something rode it down and broke it in the main trunk area. I stood it back up and supported it. I added nothing, only used the bamboo stick that came with the tree. It is still alive but fear that is brief. I have deer and raccoons. Suspect the deer. But that aside, what should I do?

If the bark is still intact, it has a chance of surviving. I would wrap the break with some protective paper (they sell it at nurseries) and keep it staked up. If the bark was broken, there is not much you can do, especially for such a small tree.
