The ornamental pear tree that my next door neighbor cut down as soon as he moved into his house about three years ago has emerged in my yard from the roots that were left.  I always liked the tree because its branches arched over my yard offering beautiful flowers in the spring, extra shade in the summer, and gorgeous autumn reds and yellows  in the fall.  It now appears to  be three scraggly trees growing from surface roots on my side of the fence and they are growing up through my Xylosma which obscured them from view.  I know I should do something about them as they are too close to the fence line and I really don’t need three trees there, but for now, I’m enjoying the spring display.
