Browning of Branch Tips on Peach Tree

Anonymous added on August 27, 2011 | Answered

The ends of my tree branches are turning brown and dying. The ends seem to be burning/shrivelling up and dying. Could this be from under or over watering? Is this common this time of year? The tree has only been in the groung for 6 months after purchased from the nursery.

This is from under watering. The tree is still trying to establish itself and with the hot summer, it is stressed and needs extra water. It is aborting its new growth (the branch tips) to try to save itself. Increase watering. Water deeply and for extended periods rather than frequently.
