Early last spring I planted a pear tree. It didn't look too great during the summer, but the beginning of this fall it really started to take off. I was thrilled, but right now, all the growth is spiralling, including the main trunk.
What could be causing this? Do I just prune the tree back?

Let it stay and grow that way. You now have a dwarf fruit tree, A weeping pear. In fact send me some so that I can grow it. I have seen "dwarf" pear tree that is 16ft tall, it is about time a dwarf pear only get to 7ft tall.
