Can a cutting from this tree be started in a vase of water? If not,how does one start a cutting for replanting? There aren't any small shoots with roots at the base of the tree.

Golden Chain trees can be propagated from softwood cuttings and from seeds. It may be too late in the season to start a cutting, but you can certainly try rooting one in a glass of water. If it doesn't root, you can try softwood cuttings in early summer, dipping the cut end in rooting hormone and setting them in a container of moistened potting soil. They should root by the end of the summer.

Best wishes with your project!
