Peach tree canker ?

BackYardGardener26(7 VA)January 31, 2014

Hello is this peach tree canker or some other type of damage. The tree has always been healthy but this fall I noticed scarring at the base of the tree. I got a puppy last summer and she did do some chewing on other trees maybe she got to this one too?

Not canker, yes that puppy scars, take about 2 years to heal up completely..

Thanks Gator, thatâÂÂs what I was hoping, but I just wasnâÂÂt sure if it could be disease, or a borer. I did get peach twig borer for the first time this year on three of my peaches, but they only effected the new green growth. WasnâÂÂt sure if twig borer or another borer could have been responsible.
