I live in Michigan and I purchased two Red Bartlett Pear Dwarf Trees at Home depot. Now I'm seeing on gardening sites that I need a pollinator. Please advise about this needs and if so, what variety of additional pear tree should I buy.

Bartlett pears are considered self-fruitful and yours should develop fruit without a second pear tree in the landscape. With that said, most pear trees will bare heavier crops if a second pear variety is in the neighborhood. So, if you have room for one more tree, choose any other pear except a Seckel to act as a pollinator. Enjoy your new trees!
