Deep Valley Tree Farm
Pyrus calleryana (Callery Pear)
This is a tree that is commonly seen in new developments and malls, and rightly so, as it has wonderful spring flowers. It tolerates heat, drought, and compacted soils, so needs little attention. Some of the original species had limb formation that allowed easy splitting in freezing weather, but the "Bradford" variety resists this problem.
The leaves are about 1.5 to 3 inches in length and width, and dark green in color. It grows in climate zones 5 - 8, and is a relatively fast grower.
