The author offers insights relative to the propagation of clonal oak through grafting. He mentions the clonal propagation technique called layering which was developed by Georges Hawver and Nina Bassuk at Cornell University. The author asserts that grafting should be used in propagating clonal oaks if all other means are cumbersome and difficult. Moreover, the author emphasizes that grafting is suitable in maintaining certain qualities of oaks such as leaf color, habit, and fall color and habit.
