    Big Trees Sugar Hackberry… from cuttings? Air layer?

    I have a cluster of Sugar Hackberry trees in my front yard that need to be cut down. They are each 3-6 inches thick at the trunk, they are 30 feet tall or so. Is there a good way / are these suitable for trying to root from big cuttings? I think the root ball (cluster) is way too big to use...

    Little celtis sinensis

    I was cleaning these up tonight and I thought I would snap a quick pic. About a year ago I got some pretty good size Chinese Hackberry starters. I cut the entire tap root off in some cases this left very little rootage. Then I stuffed them tight against the bottom of a 3" pot where they have...
