<update> This is a very popular post. Somebody really needs to answer this thoroughly. But if you are dealing with a young peach tree you may find this article helpful. </update>Anybody know? The tree was pretty much completely laying on the ground, so I propped up some on the boughs with these planks. Once the fruit begins to grow, it will be probably on the ground again, but it was certainly going to rot the way it was. I used two different boards to prop up the 2 biggest branches on the tree. it is absolutely loaded with peaches, and I'm afraid it will break or the boards will grow into it or something. So anyone who knows let me know, and I'll get rid of them if they will harm the tree
Here's what the whole tree looks like all propped up.
