Peach Trees

frank p added on May 31, 2011 | Answered

I have some peach trees with some leaves turning yellow and falling off already. It is end of May in Louisiana, fruit is still on tree at the moment and a couple of the trees have small holes in almost every leaf. Anyone know what it may be? Thanks a lot.

It sounds like you may have a pest on the trees. There are several that can cause damage like this, but they are all treated in the same way, which is with a pesticide. I personally like neem oil as you will treat pests and fungus at the same time, plus it is organic and safe for consumption. Here is more information on it:

If you have not fertilized in awhile, you may also want to fertilize the trees. This can help them to fight off the pests.
