What kind of soil should I add when I plant a Bradford pear tree?


Answer by  treemom (334)

The soil you remove from the hole should be used for backfill. Break it up and pack it firmly back. If you can't, then add back some topsoil.

Shallow-rooted, they can live in most soil types. They grow very fast and tolerate drought well. Pest and fireblight resistent, this medium-sized tree produces yellow to red to purple fall foilage and does best with full sun. Although you cannot eat the fruit, this tree will provide much beauty throughout each season.
