Fruitless Pear trees

Several years ago the old Paul Revere town of Medford (7 miles north of Bean Town 8-) started planting fruitless pear trees in the boarders between sidewalks and roads in replacemnet of troublesome Norway Maples, etc., and at sping time they are in their blossoming glory that is just delightfull.
If your town maintains planting trees similarly, you should encourge them to do likewise! If they want more info they should address the Tree Warden in Medford City Hall, Medford, MA 02155

Great replacement tree, an ornamental pear tree that has even more problems than the maple. I wouldnt recommend planting trees that are prone to breaking in half along a city street.

I agree with Toad. Soon the town can start replacing the pears whe they break in a late spring snow storm and are already heavy wit blossoms. Hopefully they don't destroy too many vehicles and an people under them. Here's some interesting sites on ornamental pears. http://tinyurl.com/b2z2f http://tinyurl.com/crtrh
