Donn, that is about as good as tree is out there, but no details on process and development. But, it does show it can be easily done. I have- few 2+ inch cuttings that are several years past rooting, based on seeing that article.

Thanks for all the help! I am investigating your recommendations. Daffodils and snow drops blooming here. Have fun.

Is it possible to take cuttings of trident maples in August by using bottom heat and high humidity.

Thanks John
Up here in sept. it is like another short spring. Everything goes to sleep during the dog days and then takes off again sept. oct.we get quite a bit of growth in the fall. If I can get a bit of root started I can keep them happy all winter under lights and with a bit of heat from underneath I am hoping to get a head start for the spring. I'm crossing my fingers. Maybe August is the ticket
Thanks again John. Here's hoping.

As an old Willamette Valley guy, I understand. Good luck.

While we wait on the after pics, tell us what you did with these cuttings.

It looks like you stuck them in a tub/flat of perlite, and apparently had them on heat mats.  How often did you water/mist?  How long did you leave them before potting them up?  Anything that seemed critical to their development?

I left them go from dec to march in perlite. I watered when I felt they needed it   I did spray with fungicide early on the bottom heat was about 65 degs. In March I potted them up in 1/3 perlite 1/3 soil and 1/3 trident leaf mulch. They took off. I used fish emultion all summer (lightly). I chopped out roots under the centers and placed some tiles there to flare the roots I placed them in AM sun. I just planted them last week. I lost about 25% thanks for the help everyone. I am very happy with the results
