Gambel oak (Quercus gambelii) and chokecherry (Prunus virginiana) were vegetatively propagated from cuttings of rhizomes (underground stems). Shoots from rhizomes arose singly or in clusters from suppressed buds. Rhizome sprouting capacity was higher in chokecherry than in oak. Rhizomes from dormant oak required a cold treatment before they would sprout. Shoot production by oak and chokecherry rhizomes was significantly higher in light than in darkness. In comparison, shoot production from aspen (Populus tremuloides) roots was not affected by light conditions. Forest Sci. 29:499-502.
