    Is my new tree dead??

    Help!
    About three weeks ago, I planted a Bartlett pear tree in my backyard (Charlotte, NC.) When I purchased it, there were no buds or anything, but all their pear trees looked pretty much the same (Lowes.)
    I followed the planted directions on the Arbor Day website pretty much to the letter, and I've been watering it every other day for about 10 to 20 minutes.
    There are no buds yet and it looks like nothing's happening... All the other trees in the area have budded or are showing leaves already, but not my new tree.
    How can I tell if it's dead? My wife thinks it's just dormant, and that it'll take a while. She thinks it went through the Easter-weekend freeze and might take longer to bud. How can I tell?

    Thanks so much.

    No need to worry. Give it another month and if no leaves still take it back for your money back or store credit.

    Ok - I'll keep up my 10-20 minutes /every other day watering schedule and see how well it's fairing in a month. Thanks.

    That may be too much water. IF you stick your fingers a few inches into the soil ball is it moist? If yes then skip the water. If no then water slowly with a hose on a trickle. If it's a small tree like thos 7 gal containers from lowes this should take you all of 5 minutes.
