Title: Stacked propagation: a new way to grow native plants from root cuttings

Author: Dreesen, David R.; Landis, Thomas D.; Pinto, Jeremy R.;

Date: 2006

Source: Nativeplants: 287-292

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication

Description: Stacked propagation is a novel method of growing quaking aspen (Populus tremuloides Michx. [Salicaceae]) and other plants that reproduce from underground stems or root cuttings. Because the mother plant is not damaged, it is particularly well suited for rare plants or those that can’t be propagated by normal methods. Our initial trials indicate that hundreds of vigorous plants can be produced by this method in each propagation cycle.

Keywords: Populus tremuloides, vegetative propagation, restoration
