    Default Bradford Pear Trees

    I think I already asked this once but I canít find my post .
    These are sort of an ornamental tree, so I wanted to be sure the branches are ok ? We have a lot of fresh limbs down here .

    What do the wilds tell you? Do they chew or eat them?

    Actually I just found now my old post ! And stepnstone said they are not toxic , and the fruit is even safe ( but not for people). So will be hauling some home for sure , hate to waste good branches

    Before our idiot condo board cut down both of our ornamental pear trees, they were my go-to first branches for squirrel kids. They loved the twisty, knotty branches and the tiny pears. I miss those beautiful trees.

    All I know is that although beautiful and often used by landscapers they are not native and they are invasive. Sucks cause I like them!

    Boutique items are fun, unique, and anything but ordinary.
