[nafex] Re: Asians on ussuriensis

Joseph Klein, of the Joseph Klein Nursery in Oregon says in his 
catalog that P ussuriensis, . . . "like serotina, is susceptible to 
pear decline."
I wrote to Joseph Postman to ask him about this and he did not agree. 
So what I am looking for is someone who has grown Asians for say 20 
years or more on P. ussuriensis. I tried to call Joseph Klein but 
couldn't get ahold of him.
Lucky, am glad to hear you are using P uss., how big are your trees 
so far, have they reached their maximum height?
