Hi! So I have a question about grafting that I think is doable but I would love the opinions of those far more experienced than me. So let's say I have a weeping willow tree. I take six cuttings from it, and I manage to get them all to root. Once they get big enough, could I try to fuse them into one tree? Like cut down to the hardwood on the base of the trunk on each of them and stick them together to make them integrate each other? Not even with all six, just like two? They did all come from the same tree, so their genetically identical. This means that they wouldn't reject each other right? I'm sorry if this is confusing, please let me know if you need more information. Thanks!

I agree that this would be a part of trunk fusion. However, willow is poor in closing cuts, so I would expect this to not work for this species.
