Peach Trees

Peach Tree Fix

Anonymous added on July 20, 2015 | Answered

I have a problem. I had a dwarf peach tree that was broken by a dog. The main trunk is gone now but there were several small "branches" coming out from the bottom of the trunk that were still alive, so I let them grow. Unfortunately, I now have a peach "bush" rather than a tree. It's pretty unsightly but it's alive, produces peaches (albeit small) and I don't have the heart to kill it. I would like to grow it back into a tree again. Is there a way to do this?

Keep an eye on the wound of the tree incase it attracts insects or disease.
Just allow it to heal and do the wait and see approach.
