Crab Apple Tree in trouble

That looks thirsty to me. The trouble is that roots are often reluctant to leave the compost and when that dries out there are no roots in the soil outside to take up moisture. Give it a good soaking and them mulch around the area. Hopefully it will grow a new set of leaves.

What is this?

At last one I know. Pokeweed, aka Phytolaca americana

What plant is this?

You need to either make that into a link or post the image direct using the Camera icon at the top right of the page.

Do you know this plant please?

The kind of leeches used in medicine (still today as there is nothing better for removing poisoned blood) are extremely rare in the wild.
