Peach Tree Canker

Asked July 31, 2019, 3:01 PM EDT

I have 11 beautiful peach trees from a distance. Up close they are nearly covered with canker all the way from the top to the ground. To cut out the canker would be to cut down the trees. They are 8 -10 years old. Is there anything I can do to save the trees and have fruit on them?

Thank you for your question. I suggest that the Purdue Extension service may be able to help you. I don’t know your county, but you can find local office contact information on this webpage: https://extension.purdue.edu/4h/Pages/countyOffices.aspx They may need photos to help. Good luck!
