Vegetative propagation of giant redwood for cloning

Tests on propagation of Sequoiadendron giganteum by cuttings, using material from plants aged 6-16 months, 30 yr and 100 yr, showed that younger plants rooted better than older plants, and rooting was better in cuttings from the lower part of the plants. Grafting of the same materials was also more successful with cuttings taken near the base of the plants. Interclonal differences were observed, which persisted through repeated graftings.
