Tight, Symmetrical Growth Habit Without Pruning
Why Cleveland Pear Trees?
The Cleveland Pear is a perfectly uniform tree, growing in a tight, symmetrical shape without the need for pruning. It grows naturally in a clean oval, making it ideal as a featured front yard tree or borders along roads and driveways.
But no matter where you plant, you'll witness a long-lasting explosion of pure white flowers each spring. And Cleveland Pears are a great improvement over Bradford Pears and Aristocrat Pears, since you get their perfect, symmetrical shape in a much hardier, stronger tree. Plus, the Cleveland Pear has a pleasant aroma…unlike the Bradford, which is famous for its unpleasant scent.
The Cleveland Pear resists damage from extreme snow, ice and wind, and pests, so there’s virtually no maintenance. And its narrow, pyramidal shape makes it well-suited to even the tightest garden spaces. But despite its more manageable size, you still get a gorgeous blanket of blooms and glossy green leaves that transition to striking orange-red in fall.

Too early to tell
The trees, 2 Cleveland Pears&1 Crimson Red Maple arrived in excellent condition. They’ve been planted for 2 weeks and so far so good.
The Cleveland Pear arrived in very good shape. We unwrapped and placed it in our tree nursery (the garage). It has been in the ground for a week and has new leaves and new growth. We have a very happy adolescent tree that we hope will grow into a perfect adult. Thank you. JoAnn
So far so good. Trees look great.
Experience of receiving and planting the trees was great. The deer eating the leaves off the trees, not so much.
Planting & Care
1. Planting: Cleveland Pears like full sun (6 to 8 hours of sunlight) to thrive and once established after the first growing season, they're drought tolerant and need little attention.
Dig your hole and make it twice as wide as the diameter and as deep as the depth of the root ball. Place your tree, fill in the soil, and water to settle the roots. Mulch the surrounding soil to preserve moisture.
2. Watering: In the spring and summer, water your 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 watering twice a week.
In the winter, a good watering 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.
3. Fertilizing: Fertilize in the fall when the tree starts to go dormant, about six weeks prior to the first frost of the season. You can use a general-purpose, balanced fertilizer such as 10-10-10 or similar.
4. Pruning: The best time to prune is in the fall season. Remove any low branching that grows up from the base of the tree, as well as any dead or damaged branches.
Estimated Shipping Time: Most orders ship immediately, however we are currently experiencing delays and could take up to 11-14 days from date of purchase. As noted on the website, some items are seasonal, and may only ship in spring or fall. Once your order is shipped, you'll receive an email with a tracking number.
