    It's not difficult. Keep a cheat sheet calander with dates of each step. I have a smart phone so it makes it effortless now, but before smart phones I did it on paper calendars. Now, my phone sends me a scheduled alert with my notes. I don't even have to think about it now. Just wait for my alert to pop up.

    I wrote it out in detail for you to make it easy to see the steps and why they are important.

    What few fruit trees I have are only in their first year, but I have a pear tree in mind that I can get cuttings from. About what length and diameter do you suggest?

    I take cuttings from my prunings about the size in dia. of my little finger ( I have small hands) and roughly 10 to 12" long depending on the knots.

    Thanks for the cutting info. I cannot use it right now but saved it in a folder for later. I love this website for the info.

    So on Pecan trees, I have a boatload of native in my yard. The pecans are small and a booger to crack, but have a nice oily fruit. I'm wanting some of the paper shell varieties. Can I plant these papers hell nuts to grow the trees, or is it a grafting process?

    I don't have any nut trees so I haven't used this cutting/rooting method on nut trees at all. I don't have a clue Chip.

    I've been told you can't, however that was from a Nursery guy that wanted to sell me some of his grafted trees... One of the reasons they use grafted trees is to put a weak variety on a strong root system. I have 4 paper shell that have been raised from seed, were getting big enough to produce then a wild fire took them out, the volunteers from the trunks have just now reached 10' or so, I saw blossoms on one of them this spring, but not sure if they set or not.
