Q.Will my pear tree ever bear fruit?
7 years ago I planted a pear tree that was over 5′ tall. I still have yet to see blooms since then, but it had blooms when planted. What can I do to encourage it? It’s nearly 17′ tall now.

I would be looking toward testing your soil. It is likely that the soil is missing some nutrients, namely phosphorus and potassium, or maybe has too much nitrogen. Both of these can cause a lack of flowers.
