So as you can see today I will be sharing my first attempt to do a thread graft on a Celtis Africana.
I have had some success with approach grafts on a Japanese Maple but I have not done any grafts on native tree species. If you have a tree with long thin branches or even if you have cutting of a tree you can try thread grafting as a option if you struggling to get growth on a certain part of a tree or even if a branch has died of on a tree. Grafting a branch in on a tree makes life easier as you can deside were the branch should be and what the angle of the branch must be. This way you have more control over the new branch as trees don’t always back bud as we want them to.
Here is a video I made yesterday of a thread graft.
