Abstract: For three years, we have been using a bundle of needle from young branches of mature Pinus elliottii Engelm, P. taeda Linn, P. massoniana Lamb, as scions, 25 months old seedlings as stocks. Through grafting, keeping moisture inducing short-branch et al., a new technique of needle-bundle-grafting has been developed (We have propagated more than 2000 grafting seedlings). It is better than the old method of scion grafting obviously, which has been recognized to be an important innovation in grafting. This paper summarizes the main idea of pine needle-bundle-grafting technique systematically.
