willow in winter?
I have a beautiful weeping willow tree in my horse pasture that I planted as a baby 10 years ago. My horses love this tree as it keeps the flies off them in summer and provides abundant shade. My kids love it too and make forts underneath the branches, etc.
I am moving and would like to take cuttings of this tree to plant at my new place which is perfect for willows, 80 acres with a stock pond that needs some bank stabilization plantings. As it is January and the tree is dormant, can I take cuttings now and start them for spring planting? What would be the best way to do this? If all goes well I will need to be moved by mid-February . . .
Any advice would be appreciated!
