CROWN GRAFT -

A Crown or rind graft enables the formation of multiple trunks, or the restructuring of elderly trees with a sound root system.

Also an inferior or damaged crown can be repaired by removing the crown of the tree from the stock and inserting new branches. The approach is generally appropriate if a trunk is more than 3cm thick.

The process involves the "squaring off" of the main trunk and the creation of several vertical slits in the BARK. The sections of bark between the slits is then prized away from the CAMBIUM. The scion is then inserted between the bark and the cambium with its single chamfered surface facing the cambium. The graft is then bound with RAFFIA and wax applied.
