Today was a typical day of weeding. I worked on cleaning up a few of the areas around the pines. My Father tilled the aisles with the tractor. After weeding I decided to remove a few of the pine air-layers that I did last year. I took some pictures of the air-layers. There is a close up of one of the flared bases that is created by putting slits in the bark. I also took a picture of the base of one of the air-layers. I dusted rooting hormone on the base of the cut before I transplanted the air-layers into 6 inch pots. Since I waited a full year before removing them, they have really nice full rooting. I am planning on doing more air-layers this year as time permits.
