  1. We just bought a home in Logan Square with a lovely pear tree in the back…
    It is very tall and we would love do donate all the fruit to anyone that can pick- harvest the tree…
    instead of feeding the bugs… that’s what the fallen pears are doing right now!
    Hope someone can help… or knows someone that can. Thanks!

    • Hi, have you joined AUA’s Google Group (link on the right side of our webpages)? With over 800 members, it is the best place to make an announcement of this kind. Thanks for the offer!
