Tree

In botany, a tree is a perennial plant with an elongated stem, or trunk, supporting branches and leaves in most species. In some usages, the definition of a tree may be narrower, including only woody plants with secondary growth, plants that are usable as lumber or plants above a specified height. In wider definitions, the taller palms, tree ferns, bananas, and bamboos are also trees.

Narrations say that the tree was a grape "tree", a wheat/grain "tree", or the tree of envy of Ahl al-Bayt (A), which Adam and Eve ate from and then became envious of blessings and position given to the Ahl al-Bayt (A) and their closeness to God; for that reason, God cast them to earth, and they had to repent. [For instance, see Uyun Akhbar al-Rida (A)].

It is related from Imam al-Rida (A) that all these views are correct in that it was a tree that bore more than one type of produce, since it was not a normal tree. 

"Apple" is not present in narrations but to my knowledge the idea of it being an apple tree was also a later addition to Christianity.

Yes, you need permission of the owner of the tree. If you request the neighbor to trim extending branches into your property, and he refuses to do so, you will be then allowed to trim only the parts which are inside your property.

Wassalam.

as salam alaikum

there is no problem in drawing pictures of non-living creatures like trees. As far as pictures of living creatures like animals and human beings, it is permissible to draw them but they should not be put in front of a Musalli when he is praying in the direction of the qiblah. It is also disliked to have such pictures in a place dedicated to worship, especially a Masjid.

With prayers for your success.

Narrations say that the tree was a grape "tree", a wheat/grain "tree", or the tree of envy of Ahl al-Bayt (A). [For instance, see Uyun Akhbar al-Rida (A)]. Maybe there is some truth to all of them since it wasn't a normal tree.
