Hello. I have been making cuttings of various trees to attempt to root them and some have developed roots. I will be needing to fill hundreds of pots with cuttings in a medium that drains well is verified to be good by experts. How can I make a rooting mixture that does not rely on buying bags of things like perlite and peat moss? Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks!

I make rooting beds in moist soft soil:
pick a spot and clear upper vegetation
spade open some slits for cuttings
drop in cuttings and close up the slit
Cover the whole area with several inches of wood chips

Most small cuttings can be very dense - 2-3" apart. Just dig when dormant and plant bare root..
 
The glass is neither half full or half empty. It is too big. But this tiny ad is just right:
