It is a tall magnificent tree, has good apples, and bears well.
I want to get some starts from it to eventually plant in my own yard. I'm thinking of active pruning to maintain an appropriate size.
What do you think about rooting cuttings from that tree directly in a soil or solution, and if it works, how long does it take and what should I expect?
