[NAFEX] Sad little apple tree

We live a little northwest of Atlanta, so the soil is somewhat clayey and acidic. I fertilized every year but missed on the lime a couple of years so the soil got rather acidic, but another apple 15 feet away is 14 feet high. I don't know what rootstock it's on except it's semi-dwarf.
I haven't seen any vole damage on the bark, but something could be going on with the roots.
I know if children are malnourished or stressed their growth can be stunted, even if they eat well when they're older, and I'm wondering if that might happen to apples, too. I hope to graft a scion on rootstock this winter, but I was wondering if there was any hope for the tree, or if it's permanently stunted.
