Flora of Cornwall (1999)

The descriptive text, below the map, is from the Flora of Cornwall (1999), which was a Tetrad Atlas (the maps had 2km square dots or Tetrads). The map on this web page depicts the plant's distribution at the 1km square scale and shows the records made pre-2000 which were used in the 1999 Flora and those made since.

Pyrus communis - Pear

Pear trees are rare in Cornwall and are usually represented by isolated individuals growing in hedges, along railway tracks or on waste ground. Examples can be found at Mount Whistle (SW64L, 1996, C.N.French), Percuil (SW83M, 1990, K.L.Spurgin), Catchfrench (SX35E, 1990, R.W.Gould), and Newmills Farm (SX29E, 1996, M.Atkinson).
