I asked this question in “questions not deserving a whole thread” and few members gave me tips. But I didn’t tell the whole story in that thread so I figured I’ll create a new thread w pics.
This is my oldest fruit tree. Planted 7 yrs ago. For the last 4 years it got covered with peaches, hundreds of them but never got one ripe fruit because of the squirrels. This year I sort of got the squirrel issue under control but it looks like this year tree won’t make any fruit! All the flowers got dried up. I also noticed edges of the leaves turning brown. Also twig die backs.
Here are some facts that might be helpful or unrelated:
I sprayed copper in fall. Sulfur in February. Copper again on March 25, delayed dormant.
I sprayed neem oil while tree was in bloom. (Bad idea?)
I gave the tree about 4 table spoon of urea about 3 weeks ago.
Peach Tree trunk got damaged when we cut down a tree near by.
There is also a large root going right next to the peach tree that I don’t think is a peach root (I may be wrong) it might belong to the maple tree 15-20 ft away?
Tree site slopes slightly but water doesn’t collect around the tree.
Apple reee 10 ft away got the same treatments except the flowers not in bloom when I sprayed neem. And it was more dormant than peach at copper spray. It looks healthy so far.
Sorry about the long thread but wanted to get all the info out.
