They can also provide the equipment necessary for offloading the tree upon delivery. We will coordinate delivery with you so that your contractor has equipment ready upon your trees arrival! OR check the box below for ServeScape to provide offloading equipment for an additional fee.

Prairie Fire Crab Apple is a beautiful rounded deciduous tree with heavy blooms of pinkish-red buds that open to deep pink-red flowers in spring.  New foliage emerges red and matures to dark green before turning orange for fall.  The flowers are followed by masses of berry sized purplish-red crab apples which mature in the fall.  Prairie Fire is extremely disease resistant.
