    Hi Alex, fall is too late IMO. Around middle of June time I have found to be best. ( zone 8b. Then you see roots growing through the spagnum moss in early August, already to be removed from the parent tree and potted up.

    I agree with Derek.
    Since the circulation of sap decreases in autumn, the chances of a tree to produce new roots is not optimum.
    I know people who start air-layering just before buds open (March), but they have a greenhouse. Here mid-June to mid-July (or even the end of July) is the best period.
