Peach tree -- borers? leaf curl?
The leaves on our Reliance peach tree (planted Sept 2008) are dying and there is something red oozing out the bottom of the trunk.
In the attached photo showing the leaves, does it look like leaf curl, or can you think of another cause? I don't know what leaf curl is, have just heard it mentioned here.
I placed moth balls around the trunk as the red oozing stuff and location fits the description of borers that I read about in this forum. Can someone let me know if the wound looks like it is caused by borers?
Any suggestions how to help the tree with these things?
This is my first attempt at attaching photos here, so am trying to include two photos in a few different ways. I hope they display.
