stagnant Peach tree

For one year now it has done nothing. It is not dead, as it is green inside. I have trimmed off each of the tips this year. What to do? Help.

The fact that your tree has not grown in 1 year is concerning.

I would look to the planting procedure and the soil that your tree is planted in.
It is crucial for the planting hole to be dug large enough for the roots.
Well draining soil is very important.

It may be time for you to dig the tree up and check the roots.
Healthy roots should be white and firm. Dead roots are dark, black and soft.
Depending on the findings you can either replant or replace the tree.

Here are some articles to refresh you on the care requirements.
