The climatic conditions of the southern regions are very favorable for
growing pear trees.
However, when planting certain varieties and quality care

Causes of pear drying
The reasons for drying pears can be both weather conditions and
pests – insects. It is important to understand that on the same land

The general condition of the fruit tree depends on the variety, age

Improper care and fit
The pear is more demanding on the conditions of planting and caring for it,
than an apple tree. The best habitat for it is elevated areas and
the upper parts of the slopes. The tree grows well on soils enough
loose, permeable to water and air, with a low standing of groundwater

digging up. If the soil is acidic add lime. Landing pit

If a pit for planting is prepared in the fall, then the root neck of the seedling
should be at the level of the soil, and if in the spring – 3 – 5 cm higher. With
respecting the conditions of proper planting and care, the tree grows and
bears fruit. However, the pear may dry up due to exposure

take into account some features when landing:
• do not plant fruit trees in areas where
clay, crushed stone or sand under the top layer of soil;
• groundwater must be at least 2 meters from
surface of the earth.
3-5 year old trees are less susceptible to waterlogging,
потому что у них корни расположены близко к surface of the earth.
To eliminate the overmoistening of the soil, it is necessary to dry it. For
This is added to the soil humus or peat.
Here it is important not to overdo it, as in excessively sandy
or peaty soil roots are subject to drying in winter. It happens
at low temperatures or with sharp fluctuations in temperature: from
thaw to frost. To prevent this from happening, experienced gardeners
recommend abundant podzimny watering. The roots are covered with ice
crust that protects them from drying out.
Resilience of trees depends largely on climate

Why pear dries: pests and diseases
The culprit of drying pears can be a mole. Tree roots he
does not gnaw, but the courses dug by it form emptiness, root system
due to the lack of contact with the earth does not receive mineral and
organic matter and begins to dry out. Detect the mole is easy,
the soil around the tree will collapse when walking. To fight with
harmful animals in several ways:
• plentifully water the tree, thereby bringing down the passages and giving power
• to burrow into the ground “noisy” – devices that when
wind blows produce noise. They can be made independently,
for example, from plastic bottles, cans or buy in
hardware store. Moles do not like to arrange their holes in

so that air and water do not touch the wound.
