Grafting onto old wood
I have some 10+ year old sweet cherry trees that I need to renew. The way they've been pruned has left no young wood low on the trees and I am aware of various pruning techniques to manage this but want to ask about grafting.
Does anyone know if it's possible to graft a bud onto the trunk or an old branch at the base of the tree? Grafting onto young wood is one thing, but are there techniques for bud grafting onto old wood?
I'm specifically looking for advice on bud grafting into the bark, not topping, clefting or any other methods.
