Rooting Dormant Cuttings of Mature Cottonwood
Abstract:Untreated stem cuttings collected in early February rooted better than those taken in December, January, or early March. Flowering and foliation preceded rooting in March collections and diminished propagation success. Removal of flower buds increased rooting. Tree-to-tree variation in rooting was highly significant, as was the promotive effect of IBA treatment. The overall effect of sex was insignificant.
