Historical Pear Tree Grafting

October 15, 2014

We conducted a fruit tree grafting project to reproduce historically significant pear trees in Shelton. The very old pear trees (Pyrus communis) are located in the South Sound, in the city of Shelton. These trees were planted by Mr. David Shelton himself, a South Sound pioneer and pear distributor. The long term plans for this project include reintroducing the grafting pear trees to community parks and auctioning them to community members.
