Peach trees are deciduous and will lose their leaves in the fall. I suspect that your trees are just naturally shedding their leaves. You'll see healthy new leaves appearing next spring. You can prune your trees when they are dormant but you can also do some summer pruning. The University of Florida has a nice publication on peach tree pruning you might find helpful. Download a copy from the folloiwng web address: http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/hs365

Best wishes with your peach trees.
