Adopt a pear tree

Standard

Our lovely neighbour, Tony, offered us one of his huge old pear trees which was blocking an area on his property. So he pruned (hacked) it, ripped it out of the ground with his excavator and drove over the fence to our place, dug a massive hole, craned it in and voila: we have a mature pear tree!  It’ll be a miracle if it survives given how badly the roots were damaged but it was one seriously productive tree when he had it. So here’s hoping we can coax it back to life.
