    This Corkbark Elm is too tall and straight, so I have been wondering what to do. 1- chop it down. 2 - air layer it. 3 - making it a weeping elm.

    Cedar deodar air layer

    I've been working on a cedar deodar air layer for 1.5 years. First attempt failed when bark healed over. I reset it this spring. I checked it today and saw some roots starting. I think it's not ready for separation. It looks like it could use another year. How can I best prepare it for over...

    BRT Air Layer Leaves Not Opening

    I started this air layer on my BRT about a month ago. First I hard chopped everything below it, which caused the top part that I am layering to explode in new growth.

    Air layering question

    Ok, so I am very new to air layering. I tried it on a cherry tree last year but was unsuccessful (I believe it was mostly due to attempting it at the wrong time of the year). My question is, has anyone ever tried soaking their sphagnum in willow water before packing it around the air layer...
