The Redspire and Cleveland Select, are trees from the pear family – they are an ornamental tree, not fruiting. They join many other varieties in Big Trees’ nursery for the upcoming planting season in the Fall.
Ross Latham of Big Trees, recently wrote an article on the planting and care of these two trees, with additional notes on their placement and effect in a yard. He stated: “The task of finding an excellent tree for a yard, one that will look great and thrive for years to come, can be a bit daunting. You have to find the right tree, and research how it will survive in the environment you're about to put it in. Then you have to get it transplanted into the yard, which depending on the tree can be a huge undertaking itself. Then the worst of it should be over, providing it isn't a tree that requires a lot of maintenance. A lot to ask for a tree. I want to spotlight a couple trees that can take a lot of the stress out of the project. There are two trees that, while they may not be the perfect tree for every yard, are very good at simplifying the process. The Redspire Pear and Cleveland Select Pear.”
