In addition to your response to move a crape myrtle as opposed to cutting it down and grinding up the stump, let me first say I'm always a fan of moving as oppose to killing old trees like this, but it is a large tree, is this the time to do it, while it is dormant? I assume as long as I get the main root ball, that will be sufficient?

Now's a great time to remove the roots and grind the stump. Remember torake away most of the sawdust and wood chips when you're finished grinding, then work some compost or other organic matter into the soil prior to planting your peach tree. Best wishes with your project~
