Q.Can You Help My Poor Peach Tree?

Zone 10310 | angieq327@msn.com added on July 7, 2024 | Answered

My poor peach tree. We cut it back during the winter months. In spring it started to blossom so beautifully. So many flowers. We started to see peaches. Then all of a sudden, nothing. Peaches started to fall, sap started to form on the bark. I know it had a fungal infection and did spray it with an anti fungus spray with copper. I’ve attached a pic of the tree and bark, and 1 peach. Thanks for any help

This looks much like Phytophthora root rot. Unfortunately, you can only slow the disease down until the death of the tree. Fungicides and proper clean up of infected and dead debris will be the best thing to do from here. Fungicides, with continual use, can help, as well.
