How many airlayers on single tree in one time

Post  yamasuri on Mon Sep 10, 2012 2:25 am

This is just a bit far ahead. Last year I bought J.maple Seiryu. Is very vigorously growing and I could have few airlayers instead chop the trunk and some thick branches next year. I would do it already this year but I missed the right time so I wanna do that next spring. This will be my first airlayer ever. Question is if is better do just one layer at a time [which I think is more succes of rooting] or multiple at the same time. Thanks for advice.

Are they on the same branch or separate?

As a kid, we've done several air layer from the same tree (ground grown) but all from different branches.

Well that's good question. First of all thanks for fast reply Dario. I need to do airlayer not ground layer and the trunk split in to "fork" dual branches. This are the point of my airlayer. [about 1 1/2" each] Do them both at the same time or one by one? Thnx

My reference to ground grown id for the mother tree (not potted).

Given your description, you should be able to do them simultaneously.

The growth of adventitious roots is driven by the auxin and sugars produced by the foliage above the girdle. So one can do air-layers 'in series' on a branch/trunk. There just needs to be enough foliage above the top most one and between the successive girdles.
