Problems with the Pear Tree : (
we have a beautiful old pear tree at the back of our house (i hate to think how old it is frome the size of it!) the only problem is over the years no one has taken care of it and it’s almost completley been over taken by ivy!
Over the winter we lost 3 massive branches from it when the snow came down so quick and so heavy : (
Last year we had such a good crop from it and i’m scared that if somethings not done soon we will loose it completley?
A couple of weeks ago i resorted to climbing it and trying to pull the ivy off further up but i could only get so high and there’s still masses to get rid of! I think i’m gonna have to invest in a lil axe to hack away at the big bits of ivy as i cant saw through it to well (or maybe i just need a better saw?)
Luckily when i was up the tree i did notice new growth peakin through and we do have a few pears on whats left of the lower branches.
