Questioner's Location: Lake Zurich, Il
Date: July 22, 2009

Question: This spring my peach tree was attacked by a caterpllars by the time a got rid of them two large branches were completly cleaned of leaves. 3 month later no leaves has sprung. should i remove them?

Answer: Don't remove the branches. Although they are bare now, they still have the potential to develop new leaves next spring. Just leave them alone until this time next year. If they still have not leafed out (highly unlikely) you can prune them off then.
