Peach Tree Dripping Sap
I have a red have dwarf peach tree in MI. Last year the peaches were very small, but plentiful. This year I only got 18 peaches on one side of the tree (still were good). Now it is leaking sap all up the tree and branches. The tree is about 7 years old. Please help me save it.

This time of year, dripping sap is not actually sap, but honeydew from a pest infestation. It is likely aphids or scale. These pests also reduce the ability of the tree to produce fruit. Treat the tree with an insecticide. I like neem oil. It is organic, safe for people and pets and also treats other undiagnosed problems the tree may have. Here is more information:
