Bradford Pear Leaves

Posted by
B. Thomas (Arlington, Texas, United States) on 31 January 2015 in Plant & Nature.

Bradford Pear trees are not recommended for our area. They have a great shape, they grow fast, and they flower profusely in the spring. The main problem associated with Bradford pear trees is the weak wood. Because of their fast growth and tight branching pattern they split very frequently in high winds. My neighbor's tree looks great in the fall, but I hope it doesn't fall on my car.

Pear trees are beautiful, I agree. It is too bad that they are damaged so easily.

Well, it's beautiful while it lasts. Your car, too, I presume. ;-)
