We Prune Your Tree Throughout Its Life… NOT just when we ship it!

So instead of a tree that resembles a fishing pole, you get one that has well developed branches and is hefty enough to start supporting fruit production.

The heights advertised are generally after we prune your tree one last time, unless otherwise noted. So the height you pay for is what you receive.

Plus we don’t include the pot or root length in our measurements. This can give you an extra 1-2 ft. in height.

Our larger trees can be one to three years older than our smaller ones and should give you fruit the first season.

Grow the world’s most popular pear in your own backyard! 

I love pears... but can't stand to buy them from the supermarket. 

Organically grown pears are rarely offered in my area... and when they do arrive, they're several weeks old and don't look appetizing. 

The non-organic pears are sprayed with an insecticide that is difficult to wash off completely. This coating is meant to withstand rain storms. 

Unfortunately, no matter how well you wash your fruit, some of these chemicals get ingested by you and your family. 

Now you can grow your own pears and not have to worry about what you're eating. The biggest benefit is the taste that comes when your pears are naturally tree-ripened... rather than being picked early and refrigerated. 

The Bartlett is so popular because of its sweet, juicy taste. Each year your tree provides bushels of pears that are great for canning, cooking and snacking.

You can pick this delicious fruit in late summer. When ripe, these pears are so sweet that they fill your yard with a delicious aroma.

A cold- hardy tree that is self-fertile and adaptable to a wide range of soil conditions. Plant several to ensure you get plenty of large pears. 

These well branched Bartlett Pear trees will sell out, so we recommend that you order yours today.

It's Easy to Plant your Bartlett Pear Tree


Step 1 - Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Bartlett Pear Tree.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.



Step 2 - Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Bartlett Pear Tree gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3 - Backfill Your Hole

As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Bartlett Pear Tree again after the transplant is complete.

To help retain some of that moisture, it's recommended that you place mulch around each plant to a depth of 2"-3" up to but not touching the trunk. Organic mulches such as wood chips also help to better soil structure as they decompose.

Will my Trees and Shrubs Look Like the Photographs?

Most trees and plants on the website are pictured in their mature form. Depending on the product and growth rate, mature development can take years for your plant to resemble the photos.

Picture the last time you took a walk in the woods. The young trees were not miniature bonsai versions of mature trees. Instead they were naturally thin and lanky. Young trees are programmed to race toward the light, before the competing vegetation crowds them out. Once established at 10 feet or more, they start developing a wide canopy and shedding lower limbs.

late fall through spring arrive bare root

Bare Root trees are shipped without dirt or any green foliage showing. Some customers who have never planted bare root before, think that they received a "dead stick" with roots. These dormant trees are basically sleeping over the winter as most trees do. Because of their hibernation-like stage, this is a great way to transplant these trees. Since a bare root tree lacks foliage, they need very little moisture.


Most Trees and Shrubs are Pruned Before Shipping... at No Cost to You

Pruning makes plants appear to be less-full than the ones you may have seen at your local big box garden center. A retailer's goal is to have plants look their best while sitting in the store. Our goal is to have them look the best after you plant them.

Pruned trees and shrubs not only travel better, but become established much quicker. So rather than supporting extra foliage, they put their energy into sending out deep roots. Once that happens, your plants become hardier and quickly explode with new top growth. Above the ground, pruning helps your plants develop a more attractive form.
