Bradford Pear vs. The Wind. And the winner is.......

02/09/18

Just a short video that one of our customers happened to capture of their Bradford Pear in a strong wind event.

The tree lost.

This is what happens to Bradford Pear trees in 15-20 years. They are a fast growing, and nice looking tree, but they are not very permanent. Instead of planting an ornamental pear of any variety, plant a good shade tree that will be there for generations. Its disappointing to invest 15 years in a tree to just have to replace it. In 15 years, a good shade tree (oaks, cedar elm, ash, etc.) are well established and have a lot of years ahead of them.

Here's the video:
