	Anyone know of a good remidy for fire blight?  Currently I am cutting
off the affected areas about 3 to 5 inches below the obvious signs of the
blight.  I have been sanitizing the shears in a bleach solution after each
cutting.  After a month of selective cutting my pear tree is begining to look
like a bonsai.  Is there any hope?  Should I be doing something differently or
in addition to the pruning?

	Any help would be appreciated.
