    It is typically a delicate tree and all you can do is keep watering it and cross your fingers. There are hybrids available that are a little tougher than the original pear trees, but it's still not a long living tree. They are pretty when they bloom in the Spring. Sorry if your trees aren't doing well.

      Thanks that is what I heard that they usually only live about ten yrs and I know they are much older that that. I’m not cutting them down though until they are Tetons hope Thanks again for your help

    Bradford Pears are sort of delicate I suppose. My parents had two and lost both of them when they were a couple of years old. See if this video gives you any help, I hope it does.

      Thanks Rose. We have been here over ten yrs and trees were here when we moved in. I think the problem is the roots Lots are on top of ground and it is almost impossible to mow without hitting them. Can I cover the roots with soil

    Here is some info on exposed roots. I don't know if the methods are different with different trees. I hope your Bradfords make it, they are a pretty shaped tree.
