We have 2 peach trees that we planted 2 years ago. We have no leaves on them at all right now. They seem like they are alive, but wondering if they are or not.

They should be producing foliage by now. It may be that your peaches are varieties with high chilling requirements; higher than the amount of chilling your area normally receives.

If this is the case they won't produce well in the long run and may need to be replaced with varieties more suited to your area. Contact your local County Extension Office for a list of varieties for your area, or consult the following web site for such information:
