peach tree issues

8 years ago

I am new to gardening as I have just bought a home with a big yard. The yard already has a peach tree - not sure about the age of the tree. Now I see some issues with this tree:

1) gel like thing oozing out of the tree on few branches
2) bark of the tree does seem to have ridges
3) fungus kind of thing has grown on few branches.

I read about bacterial canker for (1) and some have suggested to cut down those branches. Is it okay? what about 2 & 3? I'll attach some images.

I am looking to prune the tree so that it is ready for spring here in CA.

any help would be great, Thanks - Vijay
