How fast do Cleveland pear trees grow?
James R on Mar 19, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I planted 7 of them 2 years ago. They were 4-5 feet when I planted them and they are all 8-10 feet tall now. It will take a few more years for them to get to their full height. The ones I have that are 10 years old are about 30 feet high.
When you say it takes 3-5 years to reach maturity, does that mean that it takes that long to flower- OR do you mean that it reaches its expected mature growth of 30-40 feet tall in that amount of time?
Anderson-Fisk L on Apr 28, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. The answer is both: it should reach its mature size and begin to flower 3-5 years after planting.
fire blight is destroying my pear tree. Is it safe to plant this tree ?
Frank S on May 4, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Unfortunately, ornamental/flowering pear trees can get fireblight as well.
Can a person use the leaves for fertilizer for a garden ?
Junebug on Mar 16, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Sure, I have Oak and Maple trees on less than 2 acres and lots of leaves.
I use a lawn sweeper and collect the leaves and then mulch them with my tractor.
Makes a good ground cover in the winter here in Colorado or turn them under in your soil. Retains the water in the summertime. Good luck and happy gardening.
Is fire blight a problem in northern N.Y.?
Kenny M on May 8, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Sorry, I do not live in N.Y. I live in OK. Contact your County Extension Office.

I ordered two of these trees. They came very well packaged, and exactly when they said they would arrive. They appeared to be very healthy at delivery. It is still early spring here so am waiting for them to green up for spring.

Perfect Shade and beautiful!
I have purchased 4 of these trees for our home in South Jordan Utah. We loved them. They grew pretty fast, they were not messy, and they were the perfect size for our small residential lot. We just moved and I am going to buy 4 more for our new home.
