We have a mature Bradford pear tree that lost a major limb in a storm. The main trunk was split when this happened last fall. So far the tree is doing well and came back fine in the spring. What can I do to help protect and repair the trunk? Will wrapping help?
I planted a Bradford pear tree about 12 years ago. It’s not growing too good where it’s located. My neighbor’s oak tree next door is shading the tree and it’s growing toward the sun. Is it possible to uproot it and replant it somewhere else in my yard where it gets full sun?
I planted a Bradford pear tree about 6 years ago, which I purchased at a gardening center. Although it has grown tall, each year my tree gets only a very few puny white blooms while the rest is green leaves. Other Bradfords in the area are in full white bloom. The town also planted a Bradford about 15 feet from mine, which also goes into a beautiful bloom. What is wrong with my tree?
My Bradford pear trees do not seem to be growing well. Any suggestions?
I have a maple tree that has suddenly developed yellowing leaves and the leaves are falling almost like it was fall. I have noticed several trees in the neighborhood that have done the same thing and have died. They are all types of trees, from Bradford pears to evergreen varieties. It seems just one tree dies and the neighboring ones are unaffected.
Squirrels are gnawing their teeth on various things around the yard–base and large branches of fruitless pear trees, fence, base of rose trees, and also have begun popping out the buds of our gardenia bushes. I’ve heard dog repellent would be a cure and would appreciate some advice as to a homemade remedy or shelf product that would be effective in keeping the squirrels safe and continue to play in the yard without gnawing.
Think I have a Bradford pear tree (only one that my daughter gave me years ago). Last year it produced profusely, but this year I think there may be 7 pears in all! Is this normal, or am I doing or not doing something right or wrong?
