Young peach trees and one two year old apricot tree have looked very healthy until they just died.

Young peach trees, 2-5 years old, have died for no obvious reason. They have produced good fruit and then just died, at different times of the season. Recently I noticed slimy gunk at the base of two trees that died. It is very gooey but crusty on the outside, dark rust colored. What could this be?
