Urban or rural, apple or, as here, crabapple, trees have gone crazy this summer. We have wild examples of each at our place (the deer certainly are happy). Driving on rural roads through commercial apple orchards last Friday on our little expedition to Upstate New York, the crops looked amazing. Crabapples falling from decorative city trees, even at rundown spots, simply cover the pavement in places. The rest of the litter is less appealing.
