Q.Crabapple Tree Is Not Growing.

Zone 13041 | Anonymous added on July 23, 2022 | Answered

I have a Crabapple Tree that I planted in my front yard in Central New York back in 2009. It blooms every year and every branch has leaves on it. Though in the 12 years it has grown some (was about 6 feet, now around 8 feet), the tree has stunted growth especially when compared to my neighbor’s trees. I was under the impression that they grew much faster and taller than what mine is until reaching the max, especially when I look at my neighbors’ trees (there are multiple others with the same trees that are wider and taller). What do you think is the reason for the stunted growth, and is there anything I can do about it given the age of the tree?
