Vegetative Propagation of Dicotyledonous Trees

Part of the Forestry Sciences book series (FOSC, volume 5)


Vegetative propagation of woody dicots possessing one or more desirable genetic traits has been practiced by man for centuries. Numerous species of ornamental, fruit, or nut trees among diverse genera have been cloned successfully by rooted cuttings, layering, or budding and grafting depending upon species response, utility and needs (48, 29).
