'Planting' a tree branch ?
Some tree trimming has been done in my neighborhood & the live oak limbs have been stacked by the side of the road. I'd like to bring one home and "plant" it. Should I prop it up in a very large pot filled with rocks ? Or, should I pot it up in concrete ? I have successfully "planted" copper pipe in concrete & pvc pipe in rocks, but I'm not sure which way to go with wood. How long will it last before it rotten ? Or gets eaten by termites ? We are in extreme south Texas. We get very little rain, but when we get it, it's torrential. Termites are abundant. I don't plan to hang anything heavy from it. If I could get 5 years out of my "tree", I'd be pleased. Which way should I go ? Concrete or rocks ? - Laura
