You have found a tree with exceptional characteristics — perfect tapering, good vigour and desirable growth traits. It is such a great tree that you wish you could “copy & paste” it. Vegetative reproduction or, more specifically, somatic embryogenesis from shoot bud explants, may turn this dream into reality. But is this solution available to everyone? How does this technique work and what tree species can be cloned using it?
