I have seen several of these small tree's were I live.
Does anybody know if its a crab-apple, and if so can you tell me the exact cultivar ? I think it is native but not completely sure.
thanks for any help

Yes, a crab-apple. Hundreds of named forms, spontaneous seedlings also come up near plantings - same as with orchard apples.

The wild crabapples near me have slightly larger fruit and the fruit turns yellowish, never red. So I'm not sure that is a native one ... but it might be.

flower color.. can sometimes ID them ...

but i also have a few rogue seedlings around...

this is where .. unless you buy a named variety ... you might never know what it is ...
