|We planted a cleveland select pear in May of 05 and May of 07. The 2005 pear is doing great, the 2007 pear, this year isn't blooming. I broke a branch and it is still green inside. Is there something we can do to save it?

|As long as your tree is growing as expected and putting out new foliage each year, it is healthy. Non-blooming can be caused by lack of sufficient sunshine and by immaturity of the tree. If your tree is getting all day sunshine and is otherwise healthy, I suspect it is too juvenile to flower. As it grows older it should flower for you. Best wishes with your trees!
