Trident Maple Root Grafting Question

<< < (2/2)

I would air layer this tree up the trunk at the spot where you have some inverse taper. You'll end up with a much better tree.

As far as root grafting goes I've had good success with approach grafting. I use 1-2 year old whips and cut a vertical croove with a dremel at he graft site the same diameter as the whip, scrape the sides of the whip down to the cambium where it will contact the sides of the groove, and nail the whip into the groove with a small brad or finish nail. Seal with cut paste and you're done. Close to 100% success rate!


I used the word "limiting" with the thought that most people probably do not have young cuttings or seedlings laying around to use as grafting material.
