Can I plant a Pear tree in eastern Ontario Canada – Ottawa- ? How fast do they grow?
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?
