Rooting of Quercus ithaburensis Deche. cuttings decreased significantly with increasing stock plant age. Gibberellin (GA3) applied as bark treatment on leafless pruned stems of 3-year-old stock plants improved rooting percentage 6- to 7-fold. GA3 application also enhanced bud release and particularly shoot growth, thus increasing the number of cuttings per stock plant.
