I just planted a North Star cherry tree. This is Alaska so the tree is just beginning to leaf out. It has a good amount of branches including a big side branch with it’s own branching. The plan is to take that out plus the central leader to it can start shaping sideways early on. Furthermore I figure I would try to air layer them out; waste not want not.
Now for the question; has anybody here done tandem air layering on a branch? Meaning having a single long branch with two air layers going at once with the intent of separating them later. I don’t know if that would confuse the lower growing portion, having roots growing above it and all.
