Default Do locusts propagate via root cuttings

I admire a sunburst-locust tree and have taken some cuttings from the
tree. Was
wondering if anyone has ever been successful at root propagation from
cuttings
of locust trees?

doesn't mention cuttings or root propagation, but says that
thornless honeylocusts like "Sunburst" should be propagated
by grafting onto seedlings in the spring. I wonder if honeylocust
scions could be grafted onto pieces of root as well? That works
well for some other trees

Hope this helps.

cheers

http://www.southforksoftware.com/hlgraft.html

has more info on grafting honeylocust.

http://na.fs.fed.us/spfo/pubs/silvic...riacanthos.htm

does say that

"Propagation, particularly of high quality clonal stock, can
be achieved by grafting, budding, and cuttings from hardwood,
softwood, and roots (7). Root cuttings appear to be the best
method of reproducing desirable strains in large quantities at
reasonable cost. At times other species or varieties are
grafted onto the rootstock of honeylocust (24)."

Thanks for the many references. Appears there is some hope for
cuttings. It has been a long time since I done a graft.
