Meyer wrote to his supervisor. Invasive varieties of Callery pear have been reported in at least 33 U.S. states. (Courtesy of USDA via AP)

Stinky Pear Invasion

In this drone photo provided by Jerrod Carlisle, invasive Callery pear trees bloom white among 29,000 still leafless native trees on his land in Otwell, Ind., on March 26, 2020. In the area where there are only native trees, he has eliminated the invaders by cutting them one by one and applying herbicide foam around the edge of each stump top. He believes the invasive trees sprouted from seeds produced by five trees — three ornamentals and two that were supposed to bear edible pears. Indiana is among more than 30 states where Callery pears have been reported as invasive. (Jerrod Carlisle via AP)
