Hello –

The bacterium that causes canker, Pseudomonas syringae, enters peach trees through injured bark or an existing wound, such as a pruning cut on a twig or branch. I’ve included a link to our page on bacterial canker treatment here https://www.planetnatural.com/pest-problem-solver/plant-disease/bacterial-canker/.

Hope it helps!
