Central leader droops

Posted by dawn8b (My Page) on

I have a young (4 years old) prairiefire crab apple tree. The central leader has developed a permanent droop. I've read that these sucker very easily and topping is a serious offense.

It seems to have a very wild habit anyways. Will it sort itself out without any help from me?

Any idea of what an arborist costs to come and have a look?
