Q.Grafting An Asian Pear

Zone 43026 | Perlman9 added on July 9, 2021 | Answered

I was just informed after I cut our Asian pear tree to the ground after our goats got to it that I guy out the graft. Can I cut back down to the ground and regraft Asian pears again? Can the trunk be too big for that? If I can, should I graft a larger tree or a few smaller grafts and have a few trunks?

The tree will need to be dug out, and replanted with a new one. Grafting is done with seedlings and young saplings. If you do take this project on yourself, make sure that you have several trees, since most grafts tend to fail. It is important that you do not make this attempt if you only have one cutting, or one root stock. You will need many so that you can be sure that one will take.

These articles will help you should you want to make this attempt:
