You are lucky that your Bradford Pear tree has lived to that age. Many die anywhere from fifteen to twenty-five years of age as they are not long-lived trees. They have weak roots as well as branches that often break in wind storms. If the leaves on your tree are dying, you may wish to take a sharp knife and cut into the branch leading to the leaves. If you are unable to see any sign of life there (some green below the bark), you might wish to cut back that lifeless branch. Of course, if the entire tree is dying there is not much that can be done at this point to revive it.
