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.

"The Universe speaks in many languages, but only one voice. It speaks in the language of hope; It speaks in the language of trust; It speaks in the language of strength, and the language of compassion. It is the language of the heart and the language of the soul. But always, it is the same voice. It is the voice of our ancestors, speaking through us, And the voice of our inheritors, waiting to be born. It is the small, still voice that says: We are one. No matter the blood; No matter the skin; No matter the world; No matter the star; We are one. No matter the pain; No matter the darkness; No matter the loss; No matter the fear; We are one. Here, gathered together in common cause. we agree to recognize this singular truth, and this singular rule: That we must be kind to one another, because each voice enriches us and ennobles us, and each voice lost diminishes us. We are the voice of the Universe, the soul of creation, the fire that will light the way to a better future. We are one."
