I have this Crabapple I just got. I'm new to these as historically I've mostly grown Japanese Maples. At any rate, this tree was clearanced as it looked funky and was listing to the side hard. I repotted it and straightened it, but it still has REALLY long and gangly branches all to one side for the most part. Trying to figure how how, when, and how severely to prune this tree to get it more reasonably shaped and I hoped for some experienced advice. Also, as a bonus, I found what could be a mini Crabapple growing on my property near where my neighbors tree drops its fruit. The leaf looks different, but I THINK seeds dont always grow the same exact specimen correct? At any rate, is pic two a Crabapple or am I wasting time on a weed? Much thanks in advance and any advice on either situation is appreciated.
