It is most commonly found in deciduous forest areas of North America. They can be found throughout the Northeast and East coast of the United States.
Origin, history, and uses:
Pyrus calleryana is native to China and Vietnam. However, the tree was introduced to the United States by the Department of Agriculture in the 1960s as an ornamental tree. Its colorful flowers, inexpensiveness, and easy transport made it popular among landscapers. It is now considered an invasive species.
