The article discusses clonal oak propagation. It highlights the initiatives of propagators who have tried many techniques to produce superior clonal selections. It investigates the potential of clonally propagating oaks on their own roots, from cuttings or stool beds. It discusses the use of stool-bed layering to induce juvenility. The technique allows seedlings to grow for several years and is used in creating a coppice. Oak species Quercus bicolor, Q. macrocarpa, Q. palustris, Q. accutissima, Q. robur and Q. alba were used as experimental variables.
