How To Propagate A Mountain Ash From A Cutting

Question From: D. Doherty - Eureka, Montana, United States
Q: Howdy, Not a robot either. I live in northwest Montana and want to start a mountain ash tree off on an existing beauty. can i just hack a surface root off that has small 'trees' growing out of it and plant it?

A: Sorry Dennis, this tree will not grow from a root cutting. However you can start a new tree from soft or hardwood cuttings. Google "how to propagate an ash tree to find videos and blogs on how this is done. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy
