I had a Bradford Pear in my front yard Billy, about 15' tall and the wind blew it down but my neighbor has two in his yard and both have big white blooms so I hope you're right. I'm ready. Tired of these cold rainy days and muddy water.

Strange I see Bradford Pear on the TFF. I've just been doing some research to figure out what all of these blooming white thorn trees are around Texarkana. They are always the first tree to bloom out here and the flowers stink. They also have big thorns that will puncture any tire that drives over it. I thought they were Black Locust, but now I'm thinking they are Callery Pear Trees that are some type of cultivar from Bradford Pears. The reading I did yesterday said that it is a very invasive and dangerous non native tree. They are recommending that everyone destroys the Bradford Pears because of the fast growth and spreading problem.

Anyone on here that knows if these trees are Callery Pear? I'm still not positive.

In East Texas, they say when dogwoods bloom it's time.

Hate to hear that bud never can tell though bass spawn on those seawalls too. At least your fishing. I'll be working on my boat tomorrow.

Bradford Pears don't have thorns at least mine didn't. Never heard of Callery Pears.

Yep, dogwoods, cottonwoods, and Bradford pear trees blooming means get off the sofa and on the water.

When bradfords are allowed to spread and get pollinated they revert to the callery which has thorns. very invasive but the biggest problem with the Bradford is it falls apart because of it's branch structure. May happen in five years may happen in fifteen but will happen. Pretty but a wart on mother natures fanny.
