    Description

    Horizontally and vertically planted cuttings from 1-0 nursery-grown green ash seedlings sprouted and grew well during the first growing season. Cuttings from 1- and 2-year-old sprouts and older material did not perform satisfactorily. Planted seedlings survived and grew well. Cuttings should be 10 to 15 inches long made from 1-0 seedlings and planted horizontally in slits 1 to 2 inches deep or planted vertically with 2 to 3 inches of cutting left above ground. If there is danger of standing water for long periods, seedlings rather than cuttings should be used.
