Hi everyone, Can anyone tell me what name this tree is? And can it be airlayering to be a bonsai?

Apple, pear or plum, and all of those make nice bonsai. At least apple and pear layer easily.

I agree with Jim. I would've said Bradford pear.

Here in So Cal, we call that tree an Ornamental Pear, because it is used as a landscape tree for its foliage, flowers and bark, but it does not bear fruit. They make good bonsai. I have an old one that was grown as a bonsai for many years. My only problem with the one I have is that it throws out suckers, but I cannot get it to bud back. It may be nearing the end of its natural lifespan.

You should be able to air layer that one. Start soon, though, because they are generally done growing by June.
