root of peach tree

Hello

I planted in 10 november a peachtree. 2 weeks later was the wind blowing so hard that my peachtree felt on the ground :(
(Height= 100inches)

Then I tied the tree with 2 tree poles. I think that the tree is good stuck in the ground but the trunk moves a little bit when it's windy.

The rootstock moves a little bit, but not too much.

Will/did the tree survive(d) it?

Thanks :)

Your tree should survive. Try to tie it off so it isn't moving until it can root down next year. Also water it good right now so that the roots/rootball are in good contact with the soil.

Also that's awfully tall for a newly planted tree and probably the reason it blew over. It probably needs heavy pruning but it's hard to say how much without a picture. I'd probably have pruned it back to no more than 4-5ft at planting.

Also did you spread the roots when you planted? If not you might what to do that now. If you just pulled it out of a pot and planted without spreading or cutting circling roots, it may not do well.

Thanks.

The tree didn't came from a pot. I just took the tree from a tree nursery. Then I planted it.

When I find my camera, I will post a picture so you can see what needs to be pruned to give the tree a good start in spring.

Plant:

Are you saying you cut a limb off another tree and planted it without roots? If so you are wasting your time, it won't grow.

No.

I bought the tree with root and planted it immediately. That's all.
So the peachtree didn't came from a container.

Thanks.

Good, your tree should do well!
