Im-Peared  

The Frederick News-Post has an interesting article about the Bradford pear's fall from grace. Once a favored street tree, Bradford pears (Pyrus calleryana, also known as Callery pear) have recently gained attention for their ability to naturalize and their propensity to split and crack after only twenty years of life. The article notes that urban plantings tend to aim for a more diverse mix of species, and of even include native trees.
