Cottonwood and willow have the ability to sprout roots and leaves from a stick­like cutting. The cottonwood cutting is typically
18 inches long, and the willow 12 inches. most of the cutting needs to be in the soil, so only leave 1 to 2 inches out of the
ground. Also the cutting must be planted with the buds pointed upward. All of the cuttings in a bundle point the same way, so
you will only have to look carefully at one cutting per bundle.
