| I have recently purchased a house that has a big old well established pear tree in the front yard. This past year (my first year in the house) it only produced about four pears of poor quality which I'm assuming is a byproduct of neglect. the trees very overgrown probably never fertilized or cared for in any way. It has a few suckers growing from the base and three center spires rising straight to the heavens about 15 to 20 feet. What do I need to do to get this tree back on track?
It's time to take farming back. Family not factory!

|Hi Cory and welcome to NGA!
I found a PDF from Oregon State University on how to 'restore' old fruit trees. It's an interesting read and it will take a few years.
