I have a peach tree, and some of the leaves turn yellow on the edges and the tips are brown. The tree is being watered twice a week. What could be the reason of this, and should I do something about it?

While it is watered twice a week, it may not be enough. make sure that you are watering 2" on the entire root system. Typically the root system will spread out at least as far as the canopy does.

If this is a tree that has been planted in the past year, than it will need significantly more water than an established tree.

Try increasing the water and also check the roots to make sure that the roots are healthy and that there is nothing preventing the roots from taking water up.
