Espalier Pear Tree Help needed
 
My pear tree is not doing well, it appears to have a fungus and is not growing. I'm debating tearing it out and planting a peach tree in its place.

Advice would be appreciated.

You should be able to treat that with liquid copper, it works for most blights and rust. Make sure to spray late in the afternoon and remove all the infected leaves from the garden.

Thanks, Are there any home BREW remedies?
The garden is starting to become another mortgage payment.

Are there pear trees in your neighbourhood and are they also affected or is it just this one import to your garden? Peach trees are not problem-free either. If the pears in your neighbourhood are healthy it might be a good investment to treat the pear rather than buy a whole new set of problems. I hear you about the bills! I started keeping my gardening receipts and it was an eye opener to total them all up for a year.
