Pear trees require cross pollination but because of the prevalence of ornamental pears in Atlanta, it is not necessary to buy pollinator trees. Trees need 15-20 ft diameter space around them and will grow to be an avg of 20 ft tall. Trees require 6+ hours of direct sunlight but prefer full sun. Pear trees usually begin bearing fruit in their 3rd year and will be fully productive by their 6-10th year.
