The Q&A Archives: peach tree

Question: my peach tree seems dead, last year it produced lots of peaches and the tree is only 3 years old. why is my peach tree seems dead this year? I have also bought another peach tree witch I planted about 20 feet from the other peach tree for polin reasons, will this help?

Answer: If your tree did not leaf out this year try scraping the bark off a few of the branches with your fingernail. If you find green tissue beneath the bark, that branch is still alive. If the tissue is brown, it is dead. Winter weather and overly saturated soils can kill peach trees so that may be what has happened to yours. It is good to have two varieties of peach trees for good crop yield so you may have to replace the one tree. Good luck with your garden.
