I think the trees along the drive are way too close together and too close to the drive. I take it they are a type of Pear (Aristocrat, Chanticlear, Cleavland) They will have to be torn out in 6-7 years.

You are correct, but you should do little research on your trees. They are planted 20 feet apart and at maturity they have a 15 ft radius, so they will never touch. Thanks for the input though.

WHAT! are you serious. Trees are 20 ft apart. With a 15 ft radius that means they will be 30 from one side to the other. So that leaves you with 10 ft of growth touching. I think you should brush up on your math skills. Big difference between radius and diameter. Now toss in the circumference of the tree and your over the driveway and growing into the trees on either side.

On that note looks good.

Yup those trees mean trouble in a couple of years.

Firstly, I doubt the trees on this side of the drive are 20' apart and even if they are, they are only 4-5' off the asphalt, so they WILL be a major problem in a few years. Secondly, I have plenty of tree knowledge and you are correct, they get to a 15' RADIUS. You planted them too close! or you need to take a 5th grade math course.

I stand corrected, it is a 15' diameter and thet are 10 ft off the drive. Thanks for pointing that out.

Cleveland selects get about 15-20' across (Diameter) if the trees are 20 feet on center then a full grown tree will just about be touching the next one down the line. And if the trees are indeed 10' off the drive then a full grown tree will just be overhanging the drive. A good choice when lateral space is limited. Overall I think it was the right plant.
