The apple tree symbolizes Larry's absence.

George arrive wearing his father's hat, which can be taken to symbolize a few different things. One, George is displaying support for his father, and two, George has taken over as the man of the family.

The refrigerator symbolizes hard work and It is a symbol of attaining the American Dream. Other items that fall into this category in the play are the car, cigars, beauty products, and lots of spare shirts.
