Top-working a large pecan tree
Armed with a bag of scions, I drove our hydraulic lift out to the tree and prepared myself for top-working the entire tree.
bark grafts on this tree (photo at right). In the past, I've grafted trees from the top step of a ladder but then I always seem to drop a tool or roll of tape just when I needed it. Working from the hydraulic lift made this job a lot easier. However, it still took me an hour to graft this one tree.
This summer, I plan on visiting this tree every three weeks and I'll keep you posted on my progress.
