Yes, willow trees are often started this way. They produce a natural hormone that encourages rooting. You can actually root other plants easier in "willow water" or water that has been used to root willow branches.

Is there a way to grow cedar trees without the plant itself? Can I use a cut or broken branch put into plain water to start a tree??? Thanks
