How do I care for pear trees?

Caring for Pear Trees

Pear trees are easy to grow, but do not have the longevity of some other types of fruit trees. To help your pear trees live as long as possible, you should: 1. Be sure the trees are planted in damp soil. They do not do well in dry conditions. 2. Test the soil to be sure it is slightly acidic. If the soil is alkaline, add some sulfur to increase acidity. 3. Prune diseased or damaged branches immediately to prevent decay.
