Bradford Pear Bounty

The Hendersonville Tree Board is looking to help stop Bradford Pear trees from taking over. The board is joining in a statewide program called N.C. Bradford Pear Bounty, which purpose is to remove Bradford pears and provide replacement trees for homeowners willing to participate.

Hendersonville residents can receive replacement trees at no charge when they remove up to five Bradford Pear trees on their property. Registration for the program is underway, and the pickup date for replacement trees is scheduled for 9-11 a.m. May 4, 2024 at Hendersonville Operations Center, 305 Williams St.

Do not plant Bradford pear trees. Instead, plant native alternatives, such as serviceberry, fringe tree, tupelo, or dogwood, among many others. Bradford Pear Trees should be cut and stumps immediately treated with herbicides to eliminate sprouting response.
