Q.Why Am I Finding Peach Pits All Over My Yard, 3 Years After Tree Was Cut Down?

Zone 85650 | Elle Seaz added on August 13, 2021 | Answered

Before I moved in my house +3 yrs ago, a peach tree was cut down because it was leaning on the roof. Tree & stump are removed, but I am finding peach pits in the area of the tree, as well as all over my backyard.

Sometimes, if they don't germinate and dye off, they can remain for several years. Otherwise, there are others nearby and animals are bringing them back to the area where your tree once was.

This is small backyard. I have Chihuahuas and cats so I can't see how animals are bringing them back into my yard. I've had area cleaned several times in the past. Are they coming in from the ground????
