I have seen some trees here in the Dallas area that I would like to know if anyone knows what they are..Most are shaped up like a pear and they all have tiny white blooms on them right now, no leaves yet.

    five white petals...typically means the plant belongs in the (rose family) of which apples, pears, cherry etc belong. There can be dozen of different varieties.

    Thank you, I have been looking all over the internet and haven't run across it yet! Maybe I will go up to the homeowner and ask them and hopefully they will know!

    One of the greatest pleasures of Spring here in Atlanta are the Bradford Pear Trees blooming. About 30+ years or so ago, they became the rage here so they are everywhere and I LOVE THEM!

    Tracey, there are many good alternatives to Bradford pears, which are undeniably lovely when in bloom, but otherwise have a whole host of problems. See this from Alabama Cooperative Extension: http://www.aces.edu/extcomm/newspaper/may10b01.html

    All of the trees in my yard are white today...but it is not due to flowers. We got just under a foot yesterday.

    Thank you ALL for your comments, I read that they are beautiful but not good trees to have. Jeanette I knew I had seen them in Ga. I used to live in Lawrenceville. I think the climate here is pretty much the same here. KMS love it! Magnificent beauty, I am a sun lover though..lol Doug thank you for the the link, I will check up on it! H.C I would love to see a photo of your peach tree in bloom, please share once it does! I love Hometalk for this reason, being able to ask and receive..Thanks again!
