Our Chanticleer pear tree has what appears to be a large amount of suckers. We cut it back weekly, but this year it doesn't look healthy and has small, undeveloped leaves on some branches. What would you recommend?
Suckering on trees in general is usually a sign of stress, which also sounds like what you are describing with the overall health of the tree. There are a number of issues that could be causing this to happen. To make an accurate diagnosis and proper treatment recommendations, a site visit would be necessary. If you are in one of our service areas, make an appointment for a consultation at your property.
