Peach Tree in Winter

Anonymous added on October 4, 2012 | Answered

Should I wrap my peach tree with burlap for winter? The tree is two years old and has really taken off this year. I'm also thinking maybe some chicken wire around its trunk to protect it from rabbits.

As long as you grow a variety that is suitable for your area, then there should not be anything specific for you to do over winter, as the tree goes dormant and does require some cold in order to produce. For trees grown outside your hardniess zone, you should either wrap them, mulch them or grow the trees in containers and overwintered indoors.
