Cleveland Select Pear? Hello, do you know of any trials that examine the durability of the cleveland select pear? I am arguing against using it as a street tree, but I am looking for the data/literature to back up my argument. I am under the impression, as a lay person, that this is a short-lived, weak limbed tree and that we can find longer-lived trees similar in size and effect for city street planting. Thank you.
