Q.Peach Trees

Anonymous added on March 3, 2014 | Answered

This past summer we planted peach trees that were probably 2 yrs old. We had a few peaches on each tree that were wonderful. Toward the end of summer, the trees lost all their leaves. This is March now and they still have no leaves. Although the branches are still green (inside), we had a terribly dry summer in Texas but we did water them daily. Shouldn’t they be getting leaves by now?

In peach trees, this can indicate a root problem. I would check around the roots for signs of root rot.
