WANTED: approach grafting

hatflyerMay 11, 2007

should the groove carved out of the trunk for the branch to be approach grafted be deep enough that the entire diameter of the branch is fully inside the trunk? 1/2 way?

also, what are various ways to secure the branch in place? can it be wired only, or does the entire cavity area need to be fully sealed?

thanks,

jim
