Has anyone tried to start a tree from a cutting? Last year I found a Cucumber Magnolia, and would like to start a new tree. I was just going to dig up a seedling, but I have read that the magnolias have shallow, spreading roots and are very difficult to transplant without damaging critical roots. Any "how to" steps on starting a tree cutting would be appreciated. I could take a cutting from the 40 ft Momma tree or the 4 ft baby. The tree is budding now.
