Though Cottonwood can be started from seed (with great difficulty), the
best way to start it is from cuttings.
Cut lengths of thumb thick branches into 8-12" lengths during the winter,
store in cold damp conditions, in the spring when soil temp reaches about
40degF. shove the cuttings into wet soil to leave about 1" and at
least(preferably only) one bud pointing up.
