Our bare root peach tree (that was doing very well) was pulled on by one of our dogs & all the limbs died on one side, the other side has one limb left that is growing like crazy, how do I get limbs to grow on the other side again? Thanks!

Although I'm sure it looks odd right now, your tree will most likely develop branches on the damaged side all on its own. A natural growth pattern would be to have branches all around so I think a young tree will compensate for the lost branches by developing new ones. Give it some time to recover. If, within a year, it doesn't develop new branches, you may have to replace it. Let's hope for the best!
