Save grand old pear trees
Victorian house built on old pear orchard so I believe our four big old pear trees may be over 100 years old. Over twenty feet tall and massive trunks over a foot in diameter. They fruit so much we need a wheelbarrow. But they need work. Need dead or ailing branches taken out etc. As they are too tall to manage ie pick fruit, prune etc - how safe is it to drastically prune -almost pollard - them? Kill or cure?
