Cleft Grafting Fruit Trees

Learn the technique of cleft grafting of fruit trees with Prof. Emeritus of Cornell University and pomologist, Bob Andersen. First we make significant cuts to trim a crabapple tree then braid together branches of former grafts we did the year before. See how Bob makes strategic cuts to balance grafted sections of the tree for future growth and find out good tools and tips for making your own successful fruit tree grafts.
