In My Horticultural Opinion (IMHO): Kill Your Bradford Pears

I agree with North Carolina Extension Master Gardener Linda G. Brandon about the environmental and economic damage caused by beautiful, fragile Bradford pears.  She’s in North Carolina, but the issues she addresses are true in New England, too.  See the link to her report just below these photos:
