There are wild and garden varieties of Crab apple (Malus sylvestris). The wild varieties host a variety of wildlife and should not be damaged. All parts of the tree will be enjoyed by rabbits but it is the fruit and the leaves that are most useful. The leaves can be harvested in the autumn when they are about to fall and fed fresh or dried for later in the winter.
