Peach Tree Shoots

Anonymous added on October 22, 2016 | Answered

What should I do about the shoots coming out of the ground at the base of my peach tree? I planted the tree in early summer and now there are several shoots about 6-8" around the base of the tree. Should I cut them or leave them?

The shoots that appear from the base of the tree are growing from the graft stock and should be removed as soon as they appear.

They can take energy away from the tree.
