A semi-dwarf cherry tree can be maintained at about 12'. Bartlett pear trees have an upright growth habit and white flowers; cherry trees have a broad canopy and pink flowers. Both are attractive so your choice will really depend upon flower color or growth habit preference. I personally like cherry trees.

Best wishes with your new tree!
