Nothing like a good google search.
The Passe Crassane pear is a variety originating in 1845 in France, and
seems to be common in Europe, according to the references. It is sold by the
Keepers Nursery in Kent, England. I have emailed them to ask for the cost of
purchasing and shipping a tree and will let you know what I learn. I didn't
see any other vendors.
I think it appropriate for the tree to be replaced, not for $ to go to the
gardener, but directly for the new purchase. Letting the gardener dictate a
number is not going to make anyone feel better, and not going to fix anything.
I think it unfair to criticize the gardener for having a 'fancy tree.' And
if the garden has allowed trees, so be it.
Someone -- either garden(s) or the fence company -- choose to cut down this
tree in the course of putting up the fence. And they should apologize and
replace the tree. Maybe it was the fence company?
