All of those pretty white trees blooming in everyone's yard are Bradford Pears. They are far worse than kudzu. They are horribly invasive with the offspring being the Callery Pear with 4 inch thorns on it. They can spread to farm land and can reduce land values by well over half, since they can't be mowed down to kill them.

What to do? Cut them down and immediately paint the fresh stump with glyphosphate (Roundup) at 40% concentration or higher.

These are dangerous trees and need to be eliminated.

Because of the cross pollination problem, pear trees have now proliferated exponentially across our environment. And, to make matters worse, the evil offspring has reverted to the ancient Chinese Callery pears which form impenetrable thorny thickets that choke out the life out of pines, dogwoods, maples, redbuds, oaks, hickories, etc.
