[NAFEX] Peach tree suggestion

Jim,

If it is still showing life another option would be to protect 
the entire tree from what is trying to kill it, which is most 
likely the plant bacterium pseudomonas syringae.  Peach trees 
are very vulnerable to this disease as are many other prunus 
when under stress.  If you can cut stub back the tree so that 
it's low enough for you to cover it and maintain a little 
greenhouse at 80F temperature you will be keeping what is most 
likely killing your tree (the disease) dormant at those 
temperatures. 
It is not a cure all, but an invitation to extend the life to 
the point of adding a few extra years.

Rupert.

Subject: [NAFEX] Peach tree question



    Is there any way of encouraging a peach tree to send up suckers?  My 

hardiest peach tree is trying to die.  It has never produced a sucker.  It 

is eight years old and has survived winters colder than -35F.
