Pear tree help
Planted a small pear tree in my back yard yesterday and the leaves are wilting.
Planted on in the front too and its doing fine.
Any advice would be very appreciated.
Any reason soil chem would be really different between the two?
One day is really short time to have that kind of change. It could be sunburn, if the tree is very young and doesn't have much foliage yet.
Pic of both would help.
is the soil the same in both spots, the drainage etc. It could just be one took a hard shock in the replanting due to root structure, but there are a ton of variables to work thru. In the future if you plant into some micorrhyizal rich compost, it will help immensely, assuming you did not this time. Even just a good drenching with a compost extract/tea from fungal rich compost would help a lot.
Having issues trying to post pictures.
The soil is the same for both. Combination of what they were potted in at the garden store I bought them at and my home dirt.
I have No Float mulch around the base of both trees.
Think I'm going to re dig and make sure I don't have the dirt packed too tight.

If this is the one that's wilting, it doesn't look too serious. I think you'll be fine, it probably just took more of a shock than the other one. Then again, I don't have a ton of experience with young fruit trees!
Here's the front tree
Would a group of sodomites on a jungle gym count as a fruit tree?
Pear trees do not respond to pruning very well.
