Calling all fun Tree Surgeons : Ash tree needs to weep

ash tree in need of a graft

Anyone good at grafting weeping ash stock onto standard ash at 15 feet above ground level?

I've been looking around and the theory of grafting 'tree on tree' seems fine enough but I want the established tree to survive the 'surgery' and could therefore do with some help from someone that has done it all before (successfully!)

In the spirit of the WWOOF organisation, have a working weekend away from it all and teach us Ash grafting and we'll host, you work with us, no money changes hands, and together we make an Ash weep or at least set it on a new growth path. Interested? Contact us!

Background information

There are two ash trees near 'Pennyworth Well', one is ancient and now more 'trunk and branches' than 'leaves', and in late summer, the weight of seeds is often heavy enough to break off the largest branches. The other is about 12 years old but if a graft of Weeping ash stock is put on it, it will stop a lot of its vertical growth and not interrupt other trees and grow away from a close power line.

The local Church has a fine Weeping ash and I'm sure I can ask the gardener there to let us have a few fresh cuttings for the grafts.

And for those that have not discovered it yet, take a look at www.wwoof.org.uk
