I just planted seven fruit trees (four apple, one cherry, and two peach). The Sandra Rose peach has leaves that have been chewed upon by some kind of a pest. The leaves have holes in them and the edges ragged. Any idea what could be causing this? These are bare-root trees that I ordered from a nursery in Pennsylvania and planted several weeks ago. We live in Virginia.

It is difficult to say with certainty what may be causing this. I would treat the tree with neem oil, which will take care of most insect pests while also acts as a fungicide, should an issue become imminent.
