I grew up in that area. University Park where they planted these pear trees is a lovely neighborhood. Story was made even more interesting to me because of the local connection.

As for the Tree of Heaven - I did not know that was what they were called. This will be so un-PC (and I apologize in advance) but I remember people calling them "Ghetto Palms." They could take hold in the most urban neighborhood and thrive. A crack in the sidewalk was all that was needed for one to pop up.

Yes! I second this. Do this with the stumps and any large surface roots of both trees then treat all other unwanted vegetation in the plot with Roundup and cover with heavy black plastic to allow EVERYTHING to completely die back.
