Pear Tree Keeps Bending Over

Recommended Posts

Hey Y'all,

I planted 4 pear trees 2 years ago. I got them for $5 each and they were poorly maintained.

The trees have really taken off, but ones limbs constantly weep over.

I have pruned them back thinking that the wood needs to strengthen, but by the end of every growing season, they are bending over again.  

What can I do to keep this from happening?

You are not going to like this but other than what you are doing there is only one other fix that I know of. I had one do that to me and finally I topped it to a point that it would support itself. It just needs time to grow enough of a root system to support the growth. Not saying that you are doing this but too much fertilizer can cause this.
