So I was going to buy some pear trees and preferred the dwarf variety. I just found out that you have to keep apple trees permanently staked if they're the dwarf variety. Does this also apply to pear trees? My intuition says yes but I also don't know much about trees. So my guess is that pear trees may use different root stock or pears may grow differently where we don't need to stake them. Google tells me apple trees DEFINITELY yes. Fruit trees TYPICALLY yes. I don't know where pear trees fall under.
