Zone Ottawa, Ontario Canada | elisabeth richard added on June 4, 2019 | Answered

I lost all my trees in a tornado (100 + year old white pines) .I would like to replace them with fruit producing trees instead of the usual maples and pines. I was thinking of a pear tree. Is it realistic considering the cold winter? What other trees would you recommend?
