I just came across this website, (which is wonderful) and I did get a detailed answer to my question, only there is one problem: I am not a gardener! I don't know if you can help me, but what I am interested in is locating someone, (arborist? horticulturist?) in or near my area (Brockton, MA) to help me with the task of rooting cuttings from a tree. More specifically, I need help with everything from start to finish: obtaining the tree cuttings, growing them, and then help with planting the tree. I want to ensure success with this as the tree that I wish to obtain cuttings from is set to be cut down very soon. This is very distressing in itself and I have been searching online daily for resources without much success. I don't have any idea on how to go about locating the right professional, as I really don't know who that would be. I would greatly appreciate any information that you can provide and certainly any advice that you can offer on how I should proceed in locating the right person for this project. Thank you! Sincerely, Cynthia Tsarhopoulos
