Dying Peach Trees!
I need help. The past few years me and my dad have tried to plant peach trees in our orchard. We have experience with growing a lot of other kinds of fruit trees but not peaches. It seems we plant them and they are healthy for a year or two and then begin to die. The leaves first start turning yellow. Then brown and drop off completely. One of my 2 or three year old trees now has no leaves at all. Is it completely dead or can I save it? Also another one of my trees is starting to yellow. I removed the mulch which I just read I shouldn't have around it and found big gooey gobs of sap all around the bottom of the trunk under where the mulch was. I have pictures below. Any help you can give me would be great. I don't have a clue. I live in North Florida and we are getting a lot of rain right now if that helps also.
