I've heard of this and the people I know that do it claim great results. However, I've never thought to ask if this works on species other than pines?

Peter mentioned junipers and I've seen similar done with fruiting and flowering trees.

Could this technique also be used on trident maples?  When is the best time to do this?  In Minnesota we are about half way through our summer, is there still time on a young trident maple?

I might suggest thread or approach graft earlier in the season.
