Pear Tree

Anonymous added on June 28, 2015 | Answered

Bought a pear tree this spring about 6 feet tall. Planted and all seemed fine, then the leaves and stems all turned black. Thought tree was dead but then leaves started at bottom of tree and now they're are turning black also. Could you please tell what's wrong with my tree or how do I fix the problem? Thanking you in advance.

Proper watering of a newly planted tree is very important. Daily watering for the first 2 weeks.
Do the branches snap off or do they bend? If they snap off the tree has likely died.

The shoots growing from the base of the tree are growing from the root stock. What type of tree that was used in likely not a Pear tree.
