	I'm no tree expert, but as far as rooting willow is concerned, I 
think you could lay them on pavement in January and they'd still root! ;-)
I read  somewwhere that willow bark actually contains a natural cytokinin 
that stimulates rooting in any plant. I have soaked bark in room 
temperature water for a week or so, filtered it, and used it in agar as 
rooting medium, and my plantlets rooted...it's amazing. I don't think 
you'll have any trouble. 
	Anyone out there have any idea on the mode of action of willow 
water on rooting?
