No way am I a tree expert but it looks like a decorative pear tree. Bet they all are and some of them have pears. I have decorative pear trees and one of them has fruit every year...so loaded we have to pick them before they break the limbs...they are large and we and others pick and cook them. They taste like apples...so they are edible... but the other two have never had one pear that I ever saw.
What you have is one mama and two daddy trees.
I've actually heard of this before but I'm totally ignorant, with regard to trees, of telling the difference between the trees. Sounds like I have two daddy trees also but then the back yard tree actually has limbs that are assuming more the position of the tree that has fruited yet still no pears. Maybe it's just too far from the daddy tree for me to get fruit from it, or maybe the fruiting tree is far more jealous and isn't letting the back tree get any pears. Maybe I need to find, yet another pear tree, and plant it in the backyard?
