Always Looks Like You Just Pruned It

Perfectly uniform tree... great for front yards. Your neighbors will think that you get ladders out in the middle of the night and prune this tree.

It naturally grows in a tight, symmetrical shape. A semi-perfect oval. One of those miracles of nature. Its leaves fill in any gaps creating a near flawless surface area.

You often see these as a featured front yard tree or planted to line roads and entryways.

Best of all... every spring you'll witness a long-lasting explosion of pure white flowers.

An exciting development in flowering pear trees - Cleveland Pears are a great improvement over Bradford Pears and Aristocrat Pears. You get that perfect, symmetrical oval shape in a much hardier, stronger tree.

The Cleveland Pear hybrid resists damage from extreme snow, ice and wind.

Quickly grows to 30-40 ft. ideal size for small and medium sized yards.

They are very pest resistant as well, so there's never any maintenance.

In the fall, the leaves turn from a deep summer green to a dark scarlet red.

If you've always wanted a flowering pear for your lawn and landscape, the Cleveland Pear is by far the best variety.

I bought 3 Cleveland Tree's 4 years ago to replace some huge Pine & Sweetgum Tree's I had cut down in the back yard, they have grown so far to about 30 feet tall, they are beautful. Great shade tree's, beautiful white flowers in the spring then a deep lush green until they turn scarlet at the end of fall. I actually catch myself staring at them on how beautiful they are, they are surely the perfect yard tree. If I had a larger back yard I would plant a few more. I look forward to the day when they are fully grown to a max of 40 ft. Seems they are the 1st tree to bloom in the spring and the last tree's to lose their leaves before winter. They are one of my favorite tree's
January 1, 2013
I bought the tree as a tribute and memorial to my deceased husband. It was 5' tall when we planted it. Three years later it is 15' tall and has beauiful white flowers for the first time. The leaves are a beautiful green and the tree is stunning overall. I look at it and enjoy it every day. I could not be more pleased!

As Emily says, this pear is also susceptible to fire blight. Our 6 trees were infected. Luckiy for us, we found one fantastic tree man who gave our trees a treatment that will keep them for getting the blight. This is year two and no return of the blight. So don't give up on this tree. Nothing is perfect.
January 1, 2013
It's been almost a year since I received and planted the Cleveland pear tree and it's doing great despite our windy, dry, hot environment. We are in the middle of a drought here in N.M. and this tree is thriving. All I do is water it regularly. I am extremely pleased with this product and will order from them again

I loved everything about these trees for the first 8-10 years. This spring I discovered they were all infected with a bacteria-all 24 of them that lined our driveway. What an expensive lesson.

I purchased two Cleveland Pear Trees last year and just recently transplanted them to another location that will not cause any concerns with powerline in the future...The reason why I'm posting is not to say the trees has grown quickly but to comment on the resilience of these trees...It was easy to transplant because of the main tap root in the center and the trees did not show any signs of transplanting shock. I would recommend these trees to any one who is looking for an almost maintanance free tree that has the strength/resilience needed to with stand the test of times.

Planting & Care

It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Cleveland Pear Tree

Cleveland Pear Tree Planting Diretions

The Cleveland pear (or "Cleveland Select") has an attractive, narrow, pyramidal shade, making it a great fit for narrower spaces. Cleveland pear trees belong to the Callery pear family and are noted for early spring blooms, glossy green leaves. It flowers densely in spring with white blooms and the leaves turn a striking red-orange color in fall.

Choosing a locationWith their medium size they only grow to about 30-40 feet tall and 15 feet wide, and they like rich, well draining *loamy soil. They also grow in heavy clay and poor soils, which are usually inhospitable for deciduous trees. Cleveland pears like full sun to thrive and once established after the first growing season, they're drought tolerant and need little attention.

*Loamy soil is one that combines sand, silt and clay in equal amounts. Loamy soil is ideal for most garden plants because it holds plenty of moisture but also drains well. This is important because it makes sure that sufficient air can reach the roots.

Planting Directions:
1) Be sure to plant at least 20 feet away from porches, sidewalks and driveways to allow proper space when the tree reaches maturity.
2) Dig your hole and make it twice as wide as the diameter and as deep as the depth of the root ball. (For the best results, place a 2-inch layer of compost in the bottom of the hole then add a 2-inch layer of dirt over the compost).
3) Hold the tree in an upright position and keep the very top of the root ball slightly above ground level and start to gently back fill the hole. Add about 2 gallons of water when you've back-filled your hole half way.
4) Fill in the soil, pat it down all around the tree then add an additional 2 gallons of water. In addition to hydrating the root system, watering helps the soil settle and keeps it from sinking around the trunk later on.

Watering: A healthy watering habit is very important for Cleveland pear trees. They require a bit more attention at different times of the year. In the spring and summer water the pear tree at least once a week with 5 gallons of water. If the leaves feel brittle or start turning brown around the edges, increase to twice a week, but be careful not to overwater your tree. Start the weekly watering regiment when you see buds start to form. Without proper hydration, many of the buds cannot develop properly. Mulching is very beneficial but be sure that it is not touching the trunk because this can promote fungus. Be sure to keep grass at least 3 feet away as it will compete for water with the tree.

During the cold season Cleveland pears lose their leaves in the fall and stay dormant throughout the winter. It still requires water and in most cases, giving it a good soaking once a month is sufficient. However, if your tree was struggling during the summer season or is young (less than four years old) you can water it every two weeks.

Pruning: The best time to prune your Cleveland pear tree is in the fall season but you can immediately trim off any dead branches at their breaking point. Remove any "suckers" that grow up from the base of the tree or from the roots by cutting them off at ground level as these steal nutrients away from the tree. Prune your Cleveland pear tree for a central leader. If there is more than one leader, cut it off. More than one leader results in weakened forked leaders.

Fertilizing: Fertilize in the fall when the tree starts to go dormant, about six weeks prior to the first frost of the season and use about a half-pound. Spread your fertilizer over the planting area and out to the drip line of the tree and then water well. You can use a general-purpose balanced fertilizer such as 10-10-10 or similar.

The Cleveland pear tree has a superior branch structure that will withstand a multitude of elements including ice and wind damage. The Cleveland Pear is a versatile addition to almost any landscape. Its low maintenance, hardy nature and beautiful year-round appeal make it an ideal choice as an ornamental landscape tree.

How far away from a house should it be planted?
howard g on Jan 6, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It grows about 15-20 feet wide, so you should allow 12 to15 feet from your house.
How quickly does the tree grow?
Ashley A on Apr 12, 2015
BEST ANSWER: This tree grows quite fast, adding 3 to 5 feet a year when it is young. It peaks out at 30-40 feet tall.
Is this tree poisonous in any way?
A shopper on Jun 22, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Not at all. The only thing to consider is that they are a heavy blossomer. After the bloom, much falls to the ground and if falls on a sidewalk, street, driveway, it will need more than a few minutes of cleanup, and will stain the cement if left too long.
what time of year is the best time to prune them ?
Fran Roger Y on Jan 11, 2015
BEST ANSWER: If you need to prune your Cleveland Pear, fall is the best time to do it. Since the tree grows into a remarkably uniform oval, many like to leave their Cleveland Pear to grow naturally. If the tree is just too big, you can cut up to 1/3 of the top out, but will need to be careful to select a leader for future growth, so your tree doesn't develop a flat top.
I've been reading that these trees have an unpleasant smell when in bloom. Can you tell me if you've found this to be true?
Rebecca P on Mar 23, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It is not the Cleveland Pear but the Bradford Pear that has the foul smell.
A shopper on Jun 25, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Yes. It is deciduous. It blooms in the Spring and then turns green. In the Fall, the leaves then turn to bright red/orange color before dropping after the first frost.
When is the best time to plant this tree?
Dan T on May 25, 2015
BEST ANSWER: We moved into a new home and had the yard landscaped. I then added trees. I got two Cleveland pears which I planted mid-July. That was almost two years ago. They are still growing strong!
There is a yard in my neighborhood with 3 or 4 of the most beautiful trees-beautiful canopy, huge trunks and gorgeous seasonal color. I am told they are flowering pears, but I don't know the variety. I'd love one in my backyard, but I'm also told they are quite stinky (fishy) while in blossom. Is that specific to a certain variety, or all?
Connie N on Nov 16, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I was believe the Cleveland pear is derived from the Bradford pear which is known for being stinky when in bloom. The Cleveland pear was genetically designed to grow into a perfect pear shape, requiring no trimming, and the blossoms do not smell like fish! I bought 6 of them and have them in my backyard and I love them!! No complaints!
I have an old crab apple tree which is dying of fire blight growing 50 feet from where I would like to plant a Cleveland pear. Will the fire blight infect the pear?
Lynn B on Apr 19, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Why are you keeping a dying tree that may infect healthy plants? Cut down the dying tree, then use stump remover. It really sounds like you need a professional tree service to make sure things are done right.
My tree flowered this year but seems to have something eating the leaves. What is the best way to treat this problem?
Holly P on May 17, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Michael, from Connecticut, I have these trees also, I have the same problem with the ants. This year I will be putting a wrap around the trunk of the tree, about 12" up from the ground. It's called, tangle foot tree wrap- insect barrier. Read the directions good, so you understand how the product works. I found out, that these family of trees don't need a lot of water. Mine are doing great, they are sleeping now! Have fun with yours.

Is this tree deer resistant?
Christopher L on Jun 28, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I purchased this pear tree and I haven't had a deer eat it. But, if they get hungry during the winter months, they will eat anything. My suggestion until you have the tree established. Wire fence it for 2 years, otherwise, a deer eating just a little bit of it in the beginning will kill the tree. My experience, is you can't win with the animals.
Does the Cleveland pear tree grow on fla in zone 9?
Crystal N on Apr 19, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I live in Houston, TX, zone 9, and I planted 3 Cleveland pear trees in my back yard several years ago.
