    I have a fruit bearing pear tree in my yard, and boy do I want to cut it down!! I hate the darn things. too much of a mess. If I wasnt so lazy that thing would have been gone a long time ago!!!

    Good for attracting Yellow Jackets. Thats about it.

    Oh, they're also good for grabbing your hearing protection muffs right off your head! Those branches act like fishooks to them!

    I don't know Bobby, maybe you like them cause your a "fruit" yourself??? :eek: :D :D :D

    Maybe because they are shaped like all of your clients?

    why i like pear trees: because, when we have a strong wind, they split in half, and we get lots of calls to cleanup the fallen stuff and remove the rest of the tree. and of course, replace the tree, with something VERY EXPENSIVE. che chingggggggg
