A few years ago I tried to graft a root from this tree back onto this tree. Alas it was unsuccessful.
This is round two of root grafting and this time I tried thread grafting of three roots just to see if I can be successful with this “new” method. Mid August is a good time to repot trident maples in my area and so it stands to reason that it would also be a good time to apply a thread graft? That was my theory anyway and so I selected the three graft seedlings and away we went.
Now only time will tell if this has been successful. It should not be a long wait until the buds open and that will be the first sign that it is doing well.
