 I need to take down some saplings that are growing in inconvenient places.
One black locust one black walnut.
I would like to propagate these trees from cuttings because they are too big to dig up.
I have read that black locust will just grow from being stuck in the ground.
Black walnuts seem to need more care.
I'm already trying to root other cuttings by sticking them in moist potting soil and covering them with plastic to promote humidity.
Leaves are removed, till only one, or none remain.
This technique has shown some success in the past.

Please, weigh in and share your techniques for propagating from cuttings.
