propagating white ash tree

chopperthedogJune 26, 2007

I have a huge 40+ yr. old white ash tree that grows side sucker branches off the trunk close to the ground. Usually I cut them off. Can these be rooted? If so, how? Any advice or experience will be appreciated.

The side suckers may be used. best time July/August. of new growth... apply 0.3% IBA (Rooting hormone) stick in well drained soil & mist.

Thanks for the advice. I'll give it a shot. I've never started a rooting before.
