I have two 10 year old dwarf peach trees with lesser peach borer problems. See photo taken 5-17 attached. I sprayed Eight on them last Tuesday. Will they live or should I burn them now to prevent the spread to my home garden plum trees

I would not take it down yet. Peach trees typically last about 12-15 years. You trees may have some life left yet.
