Default Rowan tree cuttings

Hi everyone,

I want to try taking cuttings off a rowan tree that's probably going to die
soon as its roots will threaten a building if not dug up. Has anyone ever
tried taking cuttings from a Rowan tree? If so, how should I go about doing
it?

Thanks in advance for any tips.

Regards,

How huge is it? You could try a massive cutting back of top growth
followed by moving. Unless, of course, it's not yours ;-)


Its about 10ft tall, and I can cut it back as much as is necessary. I really
would like to save some of this, if I can save the whole thing, that would
be great, as I have a place it could go.

Has it still any berries? If not on the tree, then on the ground around?
This would be an extra safeguard, in case the cuttings didn't take.

How much room do you have around the tree Stuart? It`s possible to cut
the roots back bit by bit if you have room and some time.

There really isn't any space on one side of the tree, its right up against
the wall, so there's a bit of urgency in getting it out. Whoever planted it
didn't give it much thought!
