Can you start a new tree from a cutting?
This may be a dumb question, but Im no Horticulturalist. Im a newby, so if this is dumb, take it easy on me.
I have several types of trees on my property, Oaks, Maples, Cleveland & Bradford Pears, Black Locust, Pecan, etc.....
A few of the younger trees have these new sprouts that shoot up from near the root ball, I cut them off just to clean up the appearance of the tree. Is there any way to get those cutting to root & start a new tree? Or does it just go into the brush pile as usual?
