Q.Water Loving Fruit Trees
We have land that has standing water from a spring. the water is about 2″ deep in spots. Is it true that pear trees will absorb and do well in this situation. Also which pear is best. The soil is partly clay and soil, in eastern washington state, specifically Cheney wa. I would like to plant trees to reduce the water problem and if there are fruit trees that will do well and reduce the problem, we will do that. The area is about 10,000 to 15,000 square feet of a 40,000 square foot lot.
