    Nice job. I didn't have any success with my attempts at grafting this year. I'll try again this summer.

    do you have to remove the top of the maple you graft to?

    for ex: in on my japanese maple. bonsai i don't want to remove branches but adding some by means of grafting would be great.

    will any ill effects come to the tree if i dont remove the original portion of the tree after grafting is complete?

    Are you thinking about grafting branches of the same species onto itself but in better places?

    I remember reading the Bonsai boys are pretty particular about where the graft union is. Worried you'd have a 1/2 dozen grafts showing on your small trees.

    yes that is what i wanted to do, want to re-locate a branch from the same tree just move it down a bit and to the opposite side. I also have a crabapple that i planted from seed about 10 years ago, it is about 18ft tall now and there are a couple of branches that i wanted to move on this too,

    has anyone done this?

    has anyone grafted in the spring?
