The blight of Brad­ford pear trees

The Covington News - - Local News -

About 24 Brad­ford pear trees are due for re­moval from Farm­ing­ton lane and will be re­placed by For­est Pansy red­buds. Ac­cord­ing to City For­rester con­nie Head about 1,500 pear trees will be up­rooted in Cov­ing­ton. Be­sides grow­ing 35-40 feet ball (hin­der­ing power lines), they have a branch­ing habit that makes them prone to storm dam­age. Their vig­or­ous root sys­tem is ca­pa­ble of dam­ag­ing side­walks and sewer lines.
