Taking Cuttings Off a Beech Tree

Anonymous added on October 7, 2014 | Answered

We had to have a standard copper beech tree chopped down, as it had grown too large in the front garden and the roots were lifting up the tarmac! Could you advise me if it is possible to take a 'cutting' from the group of mini branches which have appeared from where the bottom branch was cut off - this being about 18 inches from the base of the 'stump'. I would very much appreciate your help on this matter. Have searched the web but, unfortunately, it only gives advice on where the mini branches have come from out of the ground close to the stump.
