Yes, there are different ways of propagating trees. Cutting of some trees grow. In case of others, we can go for grafting, gooties, some can be reproduced even through leaves.

I hope that made sense. I have 3 fig trees on my back patio that I rooted from cuttings and they are about 3 ft high now and starting to bear fruit. Most trees and house plants can be rooted from a cutting from that plant. Crate mertals. begonias. gardenias.and all ivy plants are easy to root. Take some cuttings about the size of a pencil in diameter. Make them about 12 to 15 inches long. You need some good soil I use a garden mix rather than a potting mix but if you have potting mix its OK there's not that much difference in them. Green light makes a rooting hormone that is a white powder this is the one I use. Get you some pots and fill them with soil a 4 to 6 inch ones and do about at least 6 or 7 o ...more
