Answer: Cleveland pears are ornamental trees (no fruit) and will reach a mature size of 20-30 feet high and 15-20 feet wide. While you could prune to keep it about 15' tall by 12' wide, it will never be a really small tree. The canopy is perfectly uniform; it naturally grows in a tight, symmetrical shape - a semi-perfect oval. One of those miracles of nature. Its leaves fill in any gaps creating a near flawless surface area.
If you want a flowering umbrella shaped tree, consider weeping cherry.
