Summer Wax Grafting of Loblolly Pine
Abstract:Wax grafting methods that have been routinely used for winter dormant season grafting of loblolly pine (Pinus taeda L.) have been developed for grafting of more succulent summer shoots. Under experimental conditions, scions covered with paraffin at approximately 185°F had significantly higher grafting success in one study and equal success in another study compared to scions covered with polyethylene bags or Parafilm® strips. Under operational conditions, grafting success of 85% was realized with summer wax grafting. Significant savings of time and money are possible if summer wax grafting methods are used. South. J. Appl. For. 11(2):96-99.
