|I suspect your tree is showing some transplant stress. Once the roots establish themselves the tree should perk up. Be careful not to overwater. Soggy soils can suffocate roots so don't keep the soil too moist. You can water deeply once or twice a week (depending upon weather) to help the roots establish. Best wishes with your new pear tree.
