Southern Living magazine hates Bradford Pear trees

Bradford Pears look beautiful in spring, but have a unique odor described by one source as fish and semen. Southern Living is taking action against "the worst tree".

For years, the Bradford Pear has been an iconic Southern tree (simply because they're everywhere). Grumpy Gardener Steve Bender is here to tell you that this stinky, oversized tree is not worth the hassle.

In 1966, Southern Living was created to highlight the beauty and culture of the growing South. In the decades since its inception, Southern Living, published monthly, has become one of the largest lifestyle magazines in the country. With characteristic Southern hospitality, Southern Living is committed to sharing the region we love with our readers, no matter where they may live.
