Arbutus unedo - air layer techniques


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!


thanks for your reply…there are at least 3 branches I plan to try to air layer…and will document as best I can…
Hopefully someone reading the forum will have some experience to guide me…being a pioneer has me minus than plus!..hahaha
