Don’t Know Jack?
Genetically dwarf, Jack® is a milestone in the pear world – getting only half the size of the species and is fire blight resistant!
J. Frank Schmidt & Son Company of Boring, Oregon, has designated Jack®, an ornamental flowering pear tree as an UtiliTrees™. Jack is suited for planting in restricted zones between streets, sidewalks and beneath utility lines. Mature heights of UtiliTrees are unlikely to tangle with overhead lines.
UtiliTrees have pedestrian-friendly branching, are disease and pest resistant, tolerant of varied soils/climates and urban growing conditions as well as requiring minimal maintenance.
Tree specialists including utility company arborists, urban foresters and LA’s are invited to use the JFS Tree Locator to find Jack® and other UtiliTrees available in their region. Get to know Jack today!
