BE A BOUNTY HUNTER IN YOUR BACKYARD

 Bradford Pear "Bounty" Program 

FREE pollinator-friendly native tree offered as reward for removing invasive pear on your property

Bradford pear trees (Pyrus calleryana) escaped cultivation, forming dense thickets that displace native plants and the pollinators and other wildlife that depend on them.  It is now illegal to sell, grow, or plant Bradford pear trees in Ohio. To stop the spread of this harmful invasive plant, Pollinator Pathway launched a Bradford pear "bounty" program which offers a reward of a FREE pollinator-friendly native tree for each invasive Bradford tree removed by property owners in Licking County.
