DescriptionSeveral years ago we began work on the vegetative propagation of yellow-poplar (Liriodendron tulipifera L.) with the aim of eventually establishing a clonal seed orchard. We tried field grafting, field budding, and air layering. We then attempted rooting cuttings in the greenhouse and in an indoor propagation bench. The best we could do with any of these methods was 4 percent success; this was with field budding. We suspected that success with field budding would have been greater except for a summer drought, so we turned to nursery budding. With the help of several generous cooperators, especially the Ohio Division of Forestry, we established a series of budding trials at the Marietta State Nursery, where the stock could be watered and otherwise tended.
