Arbutus unedo - air layer techniques


#1

Hi all…I have an arbutus unedo growing in my yard that is in desperate need of major pruning. Instead of cutting off the branches and use for firewood I would like to attempt making some air layers.
Does anyone have any experience with air layers with this tree?
Thank you

Here are a couple of pics of branches I plan to air layer.
Thank you

If no one has tried this, your experiment could prove helpful!
