I have a couple questions regarding my young peach trees growing in zone 6 Michigan. Soil here is quite sandy. I attached pictures of a Artic Glo (Lovell) I removed that was stunted and not growing well. Photo 1 looks like a gall to me. Is this correct?
I have a White Lady (Lovell) tree spaced about 17 feet away that appears to have a swollen root flare. Does this look like a crown gall forming? Photo 2
I have had a few trees already get severe gall formations on the stem and roots which were removed a month ago or so. Those two trees were Reliance (Semi Dwarf unknown rootstock) and Artic Fantasy (Unknown Rootstock). Now that I’m aware of this issue I am looking much closer at the base of my trees. I’m worried this will be a widespread problem.
I would appreciate feedback/input from you guys. Thanks!
