Answer: It is possible that the tree has been overwatered or is in an overly wet location if it is in a low spot; the soil should be kept evenly moist but not sopping wet. Pears are actually tolerant of fairly dry soil once established. You might check it with your finger and see, and certainly hold off the watering if it has been raining. There are also some possible disease problems that could cause wilting so you might want to consult with the place where you purchased the tree and/or with your county extension to make sure it is not some other type of problem at work.
