What time of year do you graft pecan trees?

Question: What time of year do you graft pecan trees?

Answer: Grafting is generally done in the spring, using the four-flap method to propagate small seedlings and branches of larger trees. Begin grafting when the bark slips freely. Normally, this occurs in mid-April to early May, at the beginning of spring growth. Choose your variety carefully to get the best one for your location.
