rooting ginkgo cuttings

I'm looking for help or direction in my effort to root four ginkgo cuttings.

I live in NYC, and there are several 20- to 30-foot ginkgo trees across
the street from my apartment. A delivery truck snapped off a low branch on
one of them, and I broke off 2- to 3-foot sections from the ends of four
branches. This happened three days ago, and I have had them stuck in a
vase of water since. What else can I do to root these and eventually plant
them? (By the way, the planting would take place in North Texas, where I'm
moving in a couple of weeks.) 

Any information about how to do this, or where to find information about
it, would be greatly appreciated.
