Air Layer Inspections… and Removals….

I decided to have a peep at a few of my air layers. No sign of roots on the oak but I had better luck on the Cork Bark Elm and Cotoneaster. I decided that I would go ahead and remove the layers to give them time to establish roots before the Winter.

This is the Cork Bark Elm.   ORIGINAL POST

It was an easy decision to remove this one. Not only had it filled the moss, it was sending roots up and down the trunk as well!

The unveiling …

The Cotoneaster hadn’t issued as many roots but as I was too worried about it anyway, I opted to go ahead and remove it any way. ORIGINAL POST

The parent Tree needed some adjustments to create a new apex. This will need a few months to fill out.
