Where-in-the-world are you ?
My mother's 2 pear trees gave excellent production
last year, with no spray or pruning or fertilizer
of any kind. The newer smaller (dwarf) tree actually
had a major branch break-off from the weight of the fruit.
fruit trees can only produce a given amount of fruit and if too much fruit is
the tree after fruit set it saps the tree. in addition, is there any "gummie"
trunk? was there any evidence of fire blight or other leaf diseases?
sometimes late frost will kill the flowers. and of course pruning at the wrong
can knock out flower setting in summer.
