Is this a Cleveland Pear Tree?


Many of my neighbors have ornamental pear trees that are flourishing in our not so great hard/clay soil. I had a landscaper install some Cleveland Pear trees this year but its leaves are much smaller than any of my neighbors. I understand that the Cleveland Pear grows more column based but that doesn't mean smaller leaves. If you google Cleveland Pear images none of them look like my tree. It is my understanding that these trees are at least five and maybe as much as ten years old.

Not sure. When I lived up there I had an ornamental "Bradford Pear". I'd guess that is a Cleveland pear by the column shape. Maybe I'm wrong but I didn't think they were long lived trees. My favorite in Ohio were dogwood and maple.

Try Google images for the Aristocrat pear. They tend to be more vertical and hardier that the Bradford. There are dozens of different ones out there.
