The Best Tree for Ornamental Landscaping & Curb Appeal

The Cleveland pear tree is arguably the hardiest and best-looking ornamental tree you can find. The trees are drought-tolerant, can grow in a wide range of soil types and grow fast. They're also great looking trees that need little pruning and sprout bright white flowers in the spring and sport dark green leaves that turn bright red in the fall. And they're naturally resistant to most pests and feature a tight network of symmetrical branches that hold up well against wind and weather.
