DescriptionGreenwood stem cuttings taken from root suckers of Populus tremuloides and P. grandidentata were rooted in coarse sand under both intermittent mist and polyethylene sheeting in a greenhouse and under mist in an outdoor propagation bed. Prerooting treatment of cuttings with aqueous solutions of lBA (20-100 p.p.m. ) stimulated rooting. P. grandidentata cuttings were more difficult to propagate than those of P. tremuloides. Fungal and bacterial infection accounted for high mortality of cuttings in some experiments.
