Bradford Pear Tree

Snowy early-spring blossoms and a tall pyramidal shape make flowering pear the ideal lawn tree for home landscapes. It also tolerates urban conditions such as air pollution. Select smaller, narrower varieties such 'Chanticleer' and 'Valiant' for street-side tree planting. A bonus is the fall color; 'Redspire' is a good choice for deep purple-red fall foliage. The tiny fruits appeal to summer birds.
