Peach Tree Surface Roots

Anonymous added on May 21, 2011 | Answered

Why does my peach tree have surface roots 5-10' outside its branch width? And why is there a clear sap seeping from the nodes on some branches?

There are many reasons for the surface roots, one of which could have been that the tree itself was initially planted too shallow. In addition, there may not be enough topsoil. As for the oozing sap, this could either be attributed to changes in temperature or a problem with peach borers.
