Landscape - Storm Damage to Bradford Pear

The following is a picture of a Bradford pear split into two by storm damage that I took recently. Although Bradford pears are a beautiful flowering tree in the spring, this is one of the common problems with this tree and a reason why it is often short lived. It is also considered an invasive plant.
