Peach Tree Curl
how to treat Peach Tree Curl, and is it going to spread to my apple tree or non fruit trees? I planted a young Dwarf Peach Tree a few weeks ago, we had a plum tree come down with Peach T C and now the young peach has it. Can we treat? will it spread to my apple tree? Will it spread to my Chiltalpa tree.?

Peach leaf curl is caused by a fungus that can attack peaches, nectarines and other stone fruits such as plum, but none of the other species that you mention. You can control the fungus by spraying susceptible trees with a fixed copper fungicide or Bordeaux mixture when the trees are dormant during winter. The University of California IPM program has a good guide sheet with detailed descriptions at
